7 % -- Link Poetry
  Being part of a select few 
  Few that can donate blood to many 
  Many who could be saved 
  Saved by me and other universal donors 
  Doners with healthy blood that is 
  Is my destiny to have blood so flawed 
  Flawed from the start of my life 
  Life to be spent unable to help 
  Help donate blood to another human being 
Author's Notes:
7 % of the U.S. population are O negative - universal donor - and I happen to be one.  However, for the past few years my blood has been deemed unfit to donate.  Being disease free isn't enough, the blood has to conform to several other guidelines as well.  It makes me truly sad that I can't help.  I just hope those who can will donate, the life you save may be the one who saves yours...

Wonderful way to motivate the ones who can donate to do their part.  I, too, wish that I could.

Wonderfully presented Joe, both the message and the poetic expression.

Indeed! Donate blood! :o)

there's so much good you can do, though hon...Become a volunteer and encourage others to give...I know from experience how wonderfully encouraging you are when people are afraid or down...You're amazing, Joe...and this write only proves what I'm saying. You're encouraging others to share the gift of life.

Hugs my friend...You're tops!

Glata, a fellow O neg.

I didn't know that being disease free isn't enough. I agree, if you have the ability to donate then maybe you should. I had a blood transfusion when I was 10 so I am one of those lives that are here today because of donors.
