Good evening everyone...
I am sitting here in Norfolk International Airport. United Airlines did not think it necessary to have my luggage arrive on the same flight I did.
While I was sitting here, a woman in a bit of a rush pushed a cart past me. The cart had several large boxes and was labelled as containing donor organs. I asked her if she needed help.
Suddenly, the luggage does not seem quite as important.
This is a definite good news-bad news situation. Obviously, someone just died. On the other hand, someone else now has a chance at life.
Sign your donor cards. I have done so. I would be honoured to be a witness on your card.
Please note: there are no halakhic objections to this. I do not know how it came to be that you have to be buried intact, but it is utter nonsense. Not that it matters. All commandments are suspended when saving a life anyway.
Have a good evening.
