Gift of Life

A man completed a solo 17-month, 31,000 mile circumnavigation in his 28-foot sailboat.

Laudable, but how newsworthy is it these days ?  You decide.

Ardell Lien pictured above was 71 at the time.  And he had undergone a heart transplant 2 years before. Oh, and a kidney transplant along with the heart transplant.  After almost dying of congestive heart failure.

His slogan: Don't take your organs to heaven - heaven knows we need them here.
