PAYING IT FORWARD WITH KIDNEY DONATIONS

******************************

For the best effect, please be sure and watch this ABC NEWS video in "FULL SCREEN" mode.



When creating this post, I attempted to include a link to the NATIONAL KIDNEY REGISTRY, but apparently as a result of this news report, their web site must have crashed, because I never could get through.

But, try it anyway, because sooner or later, they'll have the web site problem fixed.

Because of mysterious allergy symptoms of unknown origin acquired when I was a soldier in the old Republic of Viet Nam with the United States Army, the medical establishment won't even allow me to donate blood, so I reckon any organ donations would be out of the question.

Many years ago, I did sign up to donate bone marrow, but they never called me.

Anyway, volunteering to donate organs is something I truly believe in and encourage.

I see it as very much similar to what our Lord and Saviour, Jesus, the Christ, did when He sacrificed Himself for all of us.

What better way to emulate Jesus Christ than to donate an organ to save the life of a fellow human being?
