Volunteer

A dear friend who was somewhat down in the dumps asked me”What can I do to make a difference in this world?.” He felt that nothing that he did had any relevance, and that constant desire that is part of everyone to leave an imprint seemed out of reach. The need is so real, and is part of a great opportunity but often is lost in the belief that one person cannot make a significant difference. My advice to my friend was for him to become a volunteer in any organization that brought more light than darkness. Reaching out to fill the void that so many experience transforms every person that becomes a giver. In meeting the legitimate needs of those left out of the equation life brings fulfillment and meaning. The giver is changed for the better when she embraces those that have been marginalized and ignored by circumstances.
