The pink dot
Do you have that little pink dot on your driverâ€™s license?
Or maybe in Utah and New York theyâ€™re blue, but I mean the thing that alerts hospitals that you are willing to donate your organs, should you be in a condition that theyâ€™re not a whole lot of use to you any more.
Barbara Seranella just died, a fine writer and great woman, with a wicked sense of humor and a bum liver. More great women, and men, and children, will die because not enough people are willing to put that pink dot on their driverâ€™s license. MJ Rose blogs today about this, joining me in hoping others might be willing to sign their little donor card and be cremated with a couple of bits missing.
The link is http://www.organdonor.gov/donor/index.htm (I’ve given the address for those of you whose computers donâ€™t read my links.) Thereâ€™s a little card you can print off and carry around, and a list of frequently asked questions to settle your mind.
Do this now. Iâ€™ll wait.
