What can anyone do with all of the problems in the world? News this week reminded us of the reality of fear and rage.
What can I do? This week confirmed what I know to be true. I can choose to love. I can donate life. Donating a kidney to my cousin changed more lives than just the two of us.
I've been in Cleveland, Ohio with Donate Life Team Georgia. We joined the group of over 6,000 people here at the Transplant Games of America. People of every race, age and size competed in Olympic events to prove that transplanted organs and tissues change lives. These people aren't just surviving. They are thriving.
I'll update later. I've got to catch a plane back to Atlanta. Check out my facebook page for photos and info. In the meantime, are you a donor? If not, visit this site to learn more:

I can't wait to join the other thousands of donors, recipients and families at the Cleveland Convention Center. What an amazing event to celebrate the journey, struggles and accomplishments of all of those involved. Headed out to join the rest of Donate Life's group: Team Georgia 2016 Tranpslant Games of America!
Stay tuned. I plan to share many stories.
