Community Service is not just helping someone in need or even helping to keep the environment from erosion. It is a learning process, learning about yourself as well as others. Learning, listening, focusing on a problem, and resolving it, all four of these elements help to make up community service, but it does not stop there. No one is too young or too old to help, to learn, and to rebuild a mountainside, to pull weeds or even to extend a hand in friendship. A simple gesture like a handshake can turn enemies into friends.
Community Service is about exploring your talents and sharing them with others.
Community Service means sharing a kind smile as well as having a spiritual connection with others and everything around you. Beware it is the cornerstone to Mother Nature's house and your soul.
Community Service means waking up in the morning and being grateful you are alive. It is also, like inviting someone over for morning coffee then going outside to watch a humming bird hover near a flower while a spider web glistens in the sun light near by.
Community Service is about laughter and the knowledge that we need each other. It is not about slave labor like some would lead us to believe. It is about sharing our talents, our health, and our wealth with others and our environment - making planet Earth a better place to live.
Community Service is a natural high, which can be gotten when we help someone in need, or when we offer a smile to someone.
Community Service is about saying please, thank you and may I. It is also about walking around a worm on a rainy day so as not to step on it.
Community Service is about allowing and providing a safe environment for our children to play, to learn and to grow in - as well as to allow them to become adults that are not afraid to be an example of a Good Samaritan. So, they will be willing to extend a hand in friendship to a stranger or a drowning fly that has accidentally fallen into a glass of ice tea on a hot summer afternoon.
Community Service is much more than what has been written here and else where by others and basically it is about respect and caring. Caring enough to help is the bottom line.
