Something that Jim’s mother-in-law shared recently resonated with us. It was something about using the right words to make a difference. Words are powerful things – they can strike you down, or they can raise you up. They can destroy and they can move mountains.
What are the right words to make everyone see how incredibly important organ donation is? Do we need to use words that are charged with emotion, like tragedy, death, or anguish? Or perhaps the words we need are more spirit lifting, like hope, faith, or support? Though some of our words are getting through, the dramatic shift in organ donation registration we’ve been looking for just hasn’t happened. (We won’t give up).
So – what do you think about these words?
Jim’s tomorrow depends on you.
We’re going to continue to try to inspire everyone to be a donor. Please share this message – add your own words to make it stick.
