THE DAILY GLOBE, Iron wood. Ml — Saturday, Jur* 27,1990 'To Remember Me' /s a favorite FOR iETTCR OR WORSE [fear Ann Land em: One of my favorite high school teachers died recently. Among her pap^n was an may ytm had printed in your column back in I fW 1.1 found it very moving and'hope you will prim ii again. Thank you. '-- JOHN IN NORTHRIDGE, CALIF. DEAR JOHN: It's one of my favorites, too. Thank you for asking. I ihould tell you. aJ.v>, thai it U one of the most frequently requested by my readers. To Remember Me By Robert N. Test The day will come when my body will lie upon a white sheet neatly tucked under four corner* of a mattrm located in a hospital busily occupied with the living and the dying. At a certain moment, a doctor will determine thai my brain has ceased to function and that, for all intent* and purposes, my life ha* stopped. When that happens, do not aoempt to instill artificial life into my body by the use of a machine. And don't call this my deathbed. Let it be called the Bed of Life, and let my body be taken from it to help others lead fuller '• lives. ."•'•'.•'.'••.-.. ;"• • . Give my sight to the man who has never seen a sunrise, a baby's face or love in the eyes of a woman Give my heart to a person whose own bean ha* caused nothing but endless days of pain. Give my blood to the teenager who was pulled from the wreckage of bis car, *o that he might live to see bis Ann Landarm grandchildren play. Give my kidneys to one who depends on a machine to exist Take my bones, every muscle, every fiber and nerve in my body and find a way to make a crippled child walk. Explore every comer of my brain. Take my celU, if necewary, and let them .grow so that, some day, a speechless boy will shout at the crack of a bat and a deaf girl will hear the sound of rain against" her window. Burn what is left of me, and scatter the ashes to the winds to help the flowers grow. If you must bury something, let it be my faults, my weaknesses and all prejudice against my fellow man. If, by chance, you wish to remember me, do it with a kind deed or word to someone who needs you. If you do all I have asked, I will live forever. Dear Ann Landers: I hope I'm not too late to get into your discussion about spatially impaired people -(hose whose sense of direction is so poor that they get lost in their own homes. The columns you have printed have had special meaning for me because I am one of those who can never find hi> way around. That, however, u not why I am writing. I wanted to let you and your reader* in on a secret that has been cfcwely guarded by NASA for several yean. In spite of anything government officials might tell you,; the real reason that today's teams of astronauts include women is that someone has to stop and ask for directions when spaceship* gel lost -. LESTER •••'.]. PQURCIAU. DIRECTOR OF LIBRARIES, UNIVERSITY OP MEMPHIS DEAR LESTER IN MEMPHIS: I'm printing your letter knowing I shall incur the wrath of several thousand male readers. But what you've written has more than a germ of truth in it. Pew men ask for directions when they ttt lost. Many times, the wife sits there, silent and steaming, while he continues on his muddkd way, turning left and right and sometimes winding up on the same street Thanks for saying it in a way guaranteed to bring a smite.
