My Kids and I

were watching TV last night, and we saw an ad for an investigative report with Lisa Ling inside the Organ trade....they showed this woman with a huge scar on her side and the kids wanted to know what was going on.  So I made an attempt to explain to them why I think it's important to be an organ donor.  That was a kind of tricky conversation, but I reaffirmed to myself that if I die, it's a tragedy, yes, but if I die and don't give someone else my perfectly good organs and five other people die because I didn't check the 'yes' box, that tragedy is suddenly compounded in a way I would never want.
