According to Donate Life America website...

  • More than 115,000 men, women and children currently need lifesaving organ transplants.
  • Every 10 minutes another name is added to the national organ transplant waiting list.
  • An average of 18 people die each day from the lack of available organs for transplant.
  • In 2011, there were 8,127 deceased organ donors and 6,017 living organ donors resulting in 28,535 organ transplants.
I am feeling terrible tonight...So I was trying to think of  an analogy to explain what it feels like to be a part of the statistics. This is what I came up are being held hostage by your are with 115,000 other hostages...all waiting in a line...sick and scared everyday not knowing if you will live or die...and every single day an 'executioner' comes by and randomly kills 18 of you...he does not does not matter how old or how young you are..and everyday you see more and more hostages taking their place in line...Some get lucky and are set free and you rejoice and are happy for them because somehow it gives you hope that maybe just maybe your day will come too.
