This thought started in my mind when I saw an eye donation camp hoarding in my office lobby. Donating an organ, I thought, must be some serious stuff. It is like you giving away your heart to somebody. Heart exchanges do happen in everyday lives of college students, but this one is serious matter. This is literal. They are asking for it, in real sense.
There are organs which you can donate after you die and there are ones which you could donate and accept a challenging life ahead. The latter is difficult. People donate kidneys, bone marrow, cartilage, blood etc. and continue to live a life, more alive and heartfelt, though. Eye donation is generally preferred after you die. The reason could be that eyes are the only organ or sense which keeps you connected with this world and its beauty. Without eyes, you cannot see, but you can feel and touch and listen. You need to be more sensitive to praise the world using your hands or ears or heart for that matter. You can try though, its not impossible. If you have love in your heart, you do not need mediums to express it. It will flow, with or without a medium, just like water flows.
This thought of donating an organ always thrills me. I have considered filling an eye donation form many times in the past, but I have not yet completed the process. I would love to, but the only problem is that, I feel scared. I would be happy to donate a part of mine and to be able to see that person alive and feeling happy about life. That one is for me, I think. The only thing I wait for now is the feeling of compassion. I feel, I will do it someday.
