I met a girl 20 years younger than me in community college a few years ago . Her name is Tameka Brown , she's now 21 . She and I became friends and worked often on projects for class together , it wasn't for several months until she made me aware that at 18 she had a heart transplant , she had always told me to not be so afraid , if it's your time to go your going to go , things if that nature . Again this past year her heart failed her , she spent 287 days waiting in UVA for a heart , I was the one who became discouraged , angry , afraid all sorts of emotions for her .. she told me often , you can't cry , she said I don't cry and your not going to either , she said when it's my time i will get it , I have no doubt that I will get my heart , she did and few days before Christmas and actually came home New Year's Day .she is doing great , she's my hero by the way she lives and appreciates life
