Thank You Sammi
Four years ago today a young woman was in a car accident in California that left her brain – dead. Her father was a personal friend of three decades and he reached out knowing my wife was barely living day to day despite the greatest efforts known to science deployed to keep her alive.
She needed a new heart and the clock was ticking as she could have passed away at any moment.
After a whirlwind saga my wife received Sammi’s heart two days later and lives a vibrant life today. I’m sharing this for two reasons.
First- a public thank you to a great family that raised their children to care for all humanity.
Secondly- in a nation being ripped apart we should all pause and consider the message of this bittersweet event.
The best heart doctor in New York and the best heart surgeon in California examined the physiology of Sammi and my wife and determined the two were a “perfect match.”

Beyond age and distance, they had different political beliefs and different religions. And yet they were a perfect match.
This is something we all need to consider as we espouse deep anger and hatred for people different than us. You may hate a person that has blood running through their veins that could save your life and you have blood in your veins that could save theirs because God made us that way.
God bless Sammi and the Kraft family
God Bless America
