A Chance to Save a Life

posted by Gus diZerega

I wrote earlier about a little girl in my area who is fighting a very serious cancer with the odds against her, as an example of undeserved suffering in a good world.  I just saw a story in Huffingtonpost about a four year old who needs a bone marrow transplant, as she did, and an announcement as to how people can help such victims, by joining a bone marrow registry.  I went to sign up, but the maximum age is 60, and I’m two years too old.  Bummer.

Then I thought I’d announce it on this blog.  It is extremely easy to join, and you might save a life some day.

I think it’s an excellent idea, Gus! I’m type 2 diabetic, so I don’t know if I’d be accepted – I just put in a call to them to find out.
If I can, BELIEVE ME – I’ll do it!
(It’s such a pain being a diabetic sometimes – why they can’t take some marrow, “extra-sweet”, is beyond me!)
BB!

Earth Day and the Sacredness of the Earth
I think Earth Day is a particularly important moment for contemplation and commitment by us Pagans.  Often American Christian critics accuse us of “pantheism,” and in a important respect they are right.  We do find the sacred, most of us, in the earth without reference to any transcendental sp

Instructive examples on why interfaith work is a good idea
I deeply believe the problems in our country are more of the heart than of the head. Here are some youtubes courtesy of John Morehead of the Evangelical Chapter of the Foundation for Religious Diplomacy on Facebook. They speak more eloquently than anything I can write that interfaith work is a good

The controversy over Pink Slime - and what it means.
The controversy over pink slime is helping educate Americans to the fact that corporations are as beneficial to agriculture as they are to politics. Tom Laskawy put it pithily: “What pink slime represents is an open admission by the food industry that it is hard-pressed to produce meat that won’

How the "war on religion' backfired into a war on women
Here  is a really good article by Tina DuPuy on how the Republicans got themselves into such a mess with America's more intelligent women.  Left undiscussed is how the extreme pathological masculinity of both their deity and their leaders made that slip so very easy.
