You know how life tends to just carry on? How you trundle through your daily tasks, think vaguely about what you’ll do on the weekend and consider the future through a hazy lens? That’s the norm. But sometimes, life has a way of making you sit up and take notice.
This past week we attended the funeral of someone we loved very much. It was for a wonderful man, with a life well-lived, but no less heart-breaking for those of us he left behind. Suddenly, you are pondering life in a different way. Life is short, it’s not a solo sport and it truly is a gift.
It reminded us afresh of why we continue to challenge Ontario and Canada to become organ donors. The gift of life is so incredibly precious, and so easy to share. Please – register to be an organ donor today. Don’t wait for life to kick you in the pants.
Jim, and thousands more need you today. Be a donor.
