The earth quakes.  Haitians suffer

The world tweets updates, texts donations, waits anxiously wanting to do more.

The woman extends her arm willingly, squeezing a fist in gentle rhythm as the life giving blood flows.




*** Found in my blog drafts, decided to go ahead and publish it.

Well done, Ramona. Great imagery. I could never use so few words! :)

I used to donate blood like a champ. I was the Red Cross' go-to girl, when they wanted CMV-negative blood.

When I was pregnant, I was too anemic. Got denied a bunch. Gave up.

This post makes me want to try again. Maybe I can fit it in when I am off next week.

Thanks, Ramona!
