LOOKING OUT FOR OTHERS
What does it take to be a volunteer?
Must you travel afar, or is there someplace near
Where there is a need that is evident--
Where someone would think you were heaven sent
I was very touched by this poem because it reflects how I feel. I'm 97 and have witnessed so much. I believe we can brighten the day, no matter what the circumstances are. My greatest treasure is the file of letters I have received from all over the world (thanks to Family Friends Poems) that let me know that people have been amused, comforted, or inspired by what I wrote.
