Today, I am proud to be a Baltimorean for this week marked the end of the "Muslims for Life" blood drive campaign headed by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community. The blood drives collected over 11,000 bags of blood in honor of Sept. 11 victims, potentially saving 33,000 lives. As a co-organizer for the blood drive at Johns Hopkins University, which garnered nearly 174 bags, I would like to thank everyone that came out and gave blood at the many different locations across Baltimore. The "Muslims for Life" campaign highlights the ability of the American people to come together, despite their differences, in a time when it is most needed.

Since 1983, the Food and Drug Administration has banned blood donations from men who have had sex with other men any time after 1977. Created in the nascent years of the AIDS epidemic, the policy was intended to reduce the risk of spreading HIV during blood transfusions. But by design, the FDA's prohibition unequivocally discriminates against gay and bisexual men. Now, 30 years later, filmmaker Ryan James Yezak wants to pressure the FDA into lifting its discriminatory ban by staging a nationwide gay blood drive on Friday.

While the 9/11 memorial in Baltimore has received ample attention, I notice a lack of opportunities for individual community members to honor the victims of 9/11 in a practical way. Readers might be interested to learn of Muslims for Life, a blood drive campaign to commemorate the victims of that tragedy. Muslims for Life is a nationwide effort to collect 10,000 units of blood through September. This blood will be given to local hospitals to save the lives of 30,000 Americans - 10 lives for every life lost on 9/11.

Those who work in public safety consider themselves part of a brotherhood. But for the purposes of organ donation, a brother in blue may not be quite family enough, as Officer Gene Cassidy is finding out. Cassidy was shot in the head 27 years ago in West Baltimore, and though he survived, he contracted Hepatitis C during a blood transfusion and now has end-stage cirrhosis. Cassidy's deteriorating condition was profiled by "The Wire" creator David Simon in a March 11 article in The Baltimore Sun, with the call put out that someone could help by donating half of their liver.

In the hours after 17-year-old Daniel Borowy was shot in the cafeteria of Perry Hall High School on the first day of school in August, allegedly by a 15-year-old schoolmate, doctors at the Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore had to use more than 10 units of donated blood to replace what he had lost. Borowy, whose shooting prompted a broad review of safety procedures in Baltimore County schools, needed still more blood through three surgeries to repair his wounds, particularly the hole in his torso.
