RE: Organ Donors & What
by Lorraine Boucher
June 13, 2004
Regarding organ donations, some religions teach that it takes
3 days for the "soul" to completely leave the body
at death and therefore recommend that the body not be disturbed
during that time. I also think that we in the West are very
"attached" to the body, almost as if that is the only
reality and all important, not really giving much weight to the
soul. I don't think it is fair to use judgments like "generous"
to describe people who are willing to donate organs, and "not
generous" to describe people who do not. No one is "entitled"
Just a brief comment about
having Friday off. I agree that former President Reagan would
probably not want people to have that day off because he is a
truly humble man. However, I think it is appropriate to have
it off in his honor and I, for one, have no problem paying my
tax dollars in his honor.
