In today’s fast paced world we walk past people without seeing. Immersed in our own life it is easier to ignore others than to become involved. Each of us has something we can offer to the seemingly least among us. Seek those who could use your help.
For The Fulfilling Life Reach Out And Help Someone
AS YOU PASS ME WHOM DO YOU SEE?
Can you see me as I hope to be?
Would it surprise you that I served our country?
Amongst my friends I was lucky.
I was not wounded but yet I am.
I need a job. Can you offer one?
Your luxuries are not what I need.
Will you understand?
Can you see me as I want to be?
I struggle now to remember.
It didn’t used to be.
Salutes have turned to pity.
That is not what I need.
I have skill and a can do attitude.
What you see now is temporary.
Can you see me as I need to be?
From the athletic fields to the battlefield I have led.
The hardest thing I have ever done is to ask for a hand.
I who always gave it need one now.
Friend… May I call you that?
The hand you now extend will never be forgotten.
You see who I will be.
May The Lord Bless You!
Whether the Military Veteran in need of work; the young, failed by our educational system, the forgotten homeless or hungry, many of them children, or, the elderly in need of human kindness – extend your hand. It is not the government but each of us both individually and together, opening our hearts, extending a hand and doing what we can, that will make a lasting difference. You have the Power to reach out and change the World. You have the Strength to Lead A Fulfilling Life.
- Your life’s journey will be remembered not for what you had but for what you gave of yourself.
- We each have the capacity to change the world one person at a time.
