Last week, a young man from my small hometown of Glen Allan, Mississippi had the most important meeting of his life. In a heart touching gathering, he met the parents whose son saved his life. Though their son’s life ended in a car accident, his heart was placed into another’s body; a body that was holding on to dear life via mechanical apparatuses. Stories as these are heartfelt; they are also bittersweet. They deal with loss and gain; heartache and pain. In this case, however, two Mothers who never knew the other existed; who had never laid eyes upon one another respectively praised their sons for their hearts! One had the heart to give so that another could live!
