That's a pretty amazing story. What a nice thing to do. I give blood as well because it's easy and makes me feel like I'm doing something important for the community. It's easy to write a check, and I do that, too. But I like the personal touch of the blood donation.

Herbert you may want to read the article again.
"Mitchell donates blood components such as platelets through a specialized two-hour process that allows him to donate as many as 24 times a year. Whole-blood donors are limited to about six donations per year, center officials said."
Not only is he contributing life blood...calculate the hours he has given.
Are you a blood donor as well? The life you save could be your own.

Dear John CEna,
There were not and still are not a ton of comments about the blood donor. The Marine Captain, son of two members of the court received a huge turn out at St Francis High School, a fly-over and significant press coverage and those demonstrations far exceed the burials of the very vast majority of others who have died for their country.
The term you posted on this site, "Very despicable." would, I am confident, not be an expression this Marine would like to have heard particularly in juxtaposition with a man who so generously gave blood to help others.
Perhaps you might wonder if your expression is mean spirited and unwarranted.
