Searching desperately for a kidney that would let him survive a rare disease, Ricky King posted a last-ditch plea on the back of his car. The sign caught the eye of a neighbor, Armando Llanes, who introduced himself – and found that, like him, King was an Army veteran. Llanes had served for eight years; King retired after 24. Llanes was brought to tears by King’s story, and believing he should “never leave a fallen soldier,” offered to donate his own kidney to save King’s life. While Llanes ‘ organ won’t go directly to King, he’ll get another kidney in a four-way swap. “It’s that brotherhood,” Llanes said.
We can NEVER get too many stories of Kindness, tales of Compassion, or expressions of Peace. I wanted to end 2019 with a blast of GOOD NEWS with the hope that 2020 will ring in with LOVE.
