Save a Life ~ Be a hero ~ Be an organ donor ~ If you are not already an organ donor, you can register here, quickly and simply ~ http://organdonor.gov/donor/registry.shtm

I was going to write a post on Dick Cheney and his recovery from LVAD surgery, but I don’t want to compete with other major outlets on this subject, so I will table my thoughts for a few days.

Tragedy ~ The news over the weekend that the organs from Christina Taylor Green, the 9-year-old girl killed in the attack on Rep. Gabrielle Giffords in Tucson, AZ had been donated to save others lives was the small silver lining of a horrific tragedy. May God bless her soul and her family. I can only hope and pray that others could make this donation at the MOST difficult times they will ever experience.

Other news from Arizona ~ Here’s an article about a group raising money for the Arizona98, who are Medicaid patients that had their funding cut by the state and are now, NOT eligible for a life saving organ transplant. However, I think this must be about the 3rd or 4th group raising money for these folks ~ I hope they are all successful ~ http://www.kpho.com/valleynews/26454066/detail.html

I hope that all of you have a wonderful day!!

Life is a Gift That Keeps on Giving!
