These four people inspire me and have profoundly changed my life.
"Eating is an agricultural act."
"To cherish what remains of the Earth and to foster its renewal is our only legitimate hope of survival."
Thich Nhat Hanh
"Present moment, happy moment."
"The most precious gift we can offer others is our presence. When mindfulness embraces those we love, they will bloom like flowers."
"We're all born naked and the rest is drag!"
"If you can't love yourself, how in the hell you gonna love somebody else?"
Aaron is a friend who recently died from cancer. During his fight, he received a stem cell transplant, which was critical for his survival and prolonged his life by several months. Unfortunately, because of his weakened immune system, he eventually died from an infection. To find out more about his story, search "Match4Aaron" on Facebook.
Stem cell transplants can and do save lives though. Aaron's case was unique in that he was mixed race, and the registry of donors doesn't include many people of mixed race. I want to encourage everyone to become a donor. Join "Be the Match," a nonprofit organization that links patients with donors.
