Inspirational Fridays: Liang Yaoyi and The Courage to Face Death

No Life Should be Lived in Vain

Liang YaoyiAs I ponder for meaning to the end of a young life I searched for meaning to my existence.  The world has lost a key-player.  His name is Liang Yaoyi.  He was only 11 years old when he died a heroic death of a man.  He lost his life fearlessly to brain cancer.  Which means he did not leave the earth as a beaten spectator.  He was in the game of life!  And he was indeed a key-player that world will miss because . . .

Had he lived he would have became a doctor with purpose.  He would have been a trail blazer to the world of medical science.  He would have set the world on fire with new medical ideas.  His ideas would have taken medicine to greater heights as his love for life became contagious.

His unselfish dying decree surrender him as a leader that understood he had came to the end of his journey.  And what is so amazing about his death is:  Liang Yaoyi passed the torch of life by donating his liver and kidneys as he bravely recognized he own life was ending.

And I do hope you realize I am writing about the bravery of an 11 year old boy.  Fate gave him choices that have spiritually flatten adults; but, he fought to the end of his life with a gallant spirit of a victorious man.  RIP Liang Yaoyi for your young life was not lived in vain.  [tears]

The person Black Women Have It Going On is featuring this week for Go Fund Me is Jason Addy.  He attends Brown University.  He is creating his own major in humanity.  Other words, Jason is blazing his own path.  He will be traveling to Korea this year to study abroad.  He is trying to raise $4,000.  He has already received $160 in funding.

If you find his wish to study overseas worth supporting please visit his page and give.  Every dollar donated helps him to materialize his ambitions.  And to prove to you, my reader, that I believe in this young man I have donated $5 to his cause.

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.  Ralph Waldo Emerson
