Well, wow. Lisa
from The Tyee
in British Columbia, Canada, wrote to let me know about this beautifully written essay
in yesterday's paper, by staff writer Linda Solomon
, who considered donating a kidney for her brother. She eloquently captures the emotion that both potential donor and potential candidate go through -- the anxiety, the guilt, the fear, the pressure, the hope. For those of you who are interested in healing ceremonies, there's a bit about that as well. But you don't need to be invested in organ donation to find it simply a touching and powerful read. Highly recommend you check it out.
