Lord help us from these PC monsters. I recall my nephew, 20 years ago, was given months to live because of a brain tumor. Well, he’s still here and serving in the military.
My half brother was on business in California about 14 years ago when he was broadsided in the rental car he was in. He was 38 years old.
He laid in a coma for a week, with no alleged brain activity, basically brain dead. My step-father had to make a decision to take him off of life support and subsequently his organs, which were all intact, were harvested and went on to help over 38 (an approximation) people in need to continue on with their lives.
This is one of life's toughest choices, fortunately for this man and his son he made the right one.
As for my step-father, did he make the right choice in giving the permission to "pull the plug"? I'm not even going to ask that question but would rather ask the recipients of Scott's lungs, liver, heart, etc....if their lives are better off because of my brother's sacrifice.
I prefer to dwell on the positive aspects of my brother's death rather than the "what if"......
