No two lives are the same. Everyone that you meet on your journey through life has their own mother, father, siblings, and slew of problems. We all have feelings, and we all reflect on our bad moments. We spend our lives next to people we hardly know, and yet sometimes people we hardly know are the biggest factors in one’s life. Vaymond Udhisthir Persaud was a loving son and brother. Charismatic and intelligent are two of his most redeeming factors. With his passing, the sorrow of our family weighed heavy, however the knowledge that his organs could be used to help people in need was a sigh of relief. While I reflect over this period in time, I know that my brother and I share some similar values. We are both organ donors because we believe in helping those around us. However helping doesn’t have to just be organ donation. Take the time to get to know individuals. Just because we’re all individuals doesn’t mean we’re alone. Make sure to take care of your mental health and support those around you. Give to those who you can help not because it makes your life better, but because it makes theirs better. These are the lessons my brother taught me, and will stick with me for life. Gone but never forgotten.
