How does one show gratitude for a profoundly selfless, life-giving choice, to a person or persons they’ve never known, and can never know?

And if we could say thanks, even, what more could we say than thanks, without imposing on someone whose character reveals no want or need for recognition?

Maybe it is, that great sacrifice is quietly rewarded as it hibernates in its beneficiary; that it waits in hearts; that it is perpetuative.

~tdv, thankful?
