Recently, while talking with a friend of mine, I told her about an incident that occurred to a lady friend who works at an organ donation non-profit. The non-profit provides literature and education about the benefits of organ donation, both to the donor and the recipient. They have a web site that includes an easy way to sign up with the State of
for organ donation in the event of death.
Last Monday morning, a young lady of about 19 walked into the office and said:
“I want to know about organ donation.”
All the while, she had her right hand deep in her open purse during the exchange.
(You should know that the whole office had just attended a seminar sponsored by the Travis County Sheriff’s Department entitled “Civilian Response to an Active Shooter”. You could see why they nervous with this young lady.)
“No, you don’t understand” the girl said. “I want to donate organs now”, and she pulled her hand out of her purse.
My friend asked: “What’d she have in her purse, a kidney?”
