WHY I BELIEVE IN OUR MISSION
There is a reason that paths of certain people cross at specific times. Whether it is in our own neighborhood or half way around the world we are destine to meet people in need of some type of help. EACH one of us, as individuals, has a unique ability that when shared, improves the quality of a life.
I have seen many medicines that are created in a laboratory that prevent, cure, or make an illness more bearable. I have come to believe one of the most powerful medicines in our world does not come from a bottle but emerges from the foundations of our humanity. IT IS HOPE. Hope is a powerful medicine. It gives people the strength to care, to heal, to persevere through their most desperate times. But most importantly it gives them the strength to believe that someday their suffering will be relieved.
Our compassion drives us to actively seek out one that is suffering and use our own gifts to ease their psychological or physical pain. The most heartwarming feelings I experience is when I have been graced with the opportunity to use my gifts to ease the suffering and pain of a fellow human being.
There are no words that can describe the softening of someone’s eyes and the smile of gratitude that emerges on the face when their pain and suffering has been eased. This is something that must be experienced to fully appreciate and understand.
Each one of us has a gift. They are unique to each individual. I have the privilege to work with people who tenaciously hold to their opinions, attitudes, and approaches that they believe will best suit the people we serve. As we learn to step in when our gift is needed and out when someone else’s may better suit the situation, education, experience, compassion and beliefs turn into wisdom.
I AM A CONDUIT THAT SOMETHING FAR GREATER THAN MYSELF
