Life is what you make of it

I was planning to do my Halloween blog today. But life plans always go awry, things never happen according to plan, wtf.

Life is too often a sad, cruel joke.

I’m posting this appeal, instead.

A friend of a leukemia patient is appealing for people to come forward to a Bone Marrow Donor Drive this Sunday.

I normally ignore such appeals because I’m afraid of pain and because I’m a cynical, cold-hearted, anti-life freak.

But this appeal comes from a friend.

It also comes to me at a time when I am re-evaluating myself, my life, my thoughts, my goals.

I have come to the conclusion that just because I’m anti-life, it doesn’t mean other people’s lives are not important to them.

I respect people’s wish to live and to live well. Shouldn’t I help if I can, no matter how small or insignificant that help may be?

So, I shall be going for the drive this Sunday. It’s only a little prick on the finger to test your blood for HLA type and to get on the database.

I hope to see you there.

Here’s the main thing you need to know:

Bone Marrow Donor Drive
Date: 5th November 2006 (Sunday)
Venue: Aramsa – The Garden Spa Function Room
Bishan Park II, 1382 Ang Mo Kio Ave 1
Time: 10am to 4pm

Background and details at Jaywalk’s blog.

Thank you for your kind attention.

    That little spot of pain will go a long way to helping someone live life to the fullest. Thank you – from someone who have had help before. As you ponder on your next tentative steps ahead, may you find the path that you are to take. Take care!
