A completely and totally engaging story masterfully told.

I see the tie to the topic, but I'm hoping others will too - I could see this being marked down because of it. I hope not, though.

This read as true - I'm curious if it is. Enjoyed this very much.

You make a compelling argument for the brotherhood and sisterhood of regular blood donators. Thank you for what you've done despite the discomfort you experience in your fainting reactions.
Some intense moments here. I could picture the pale-faced man donating blood. Well done.
This beautiful story shows the love of Christian "brothers and sisters" in Christ living out their Christian principles.

I guessed this might be your story. Very well written and I admire your courage. I have to lie flat if any needles come near me...or I also end up on the floor.

A wonderful story of love and compassion. It reflects the brotherhood of man and that we are our brother's keeper. That you and your wife were willing to lay down your life for your friend is an example for others to follow just as Christ did for us.
