Blood donations traditionally drop off this time of year, which causes a low blood supply -- and the annual need for potential donors to step up and give a pint increases. It's not by accident that January is National Blood Donor Month. I'm donating today. Who's with me?
As the tenth anniversary of the terrorist attacks on September 11th, 2001 approach I remember how helpless I felt that day. I think so many Americans wanted to know what they could do to help and, unfortunately, there was not a lot we could do. The one thing many of us could, and did, do was give blood. A need we still have today.
