I’LL SHOW YOU A VOLUNTEER

Show me a person who spends endless hours in training without pay,
And, I’ll show you a volunteer.

Show me a person where a cry for help brings split-second dispatch,
And, I’ll show you a volunteer.

Show me a person who is devastated when lives are lost or maimed,
And, I’ll show you a volunteer.

Show me a person who is graciously welcomed as a next-door neighbor,
And, I’ll show you a volunteer.

Show me a person who takes ridicule more than compliments,
And, I’ll show you a volunteer.

Show me a person whose car is garaged with the grille facing out,
And, I’ll show you a volunteer.

Show me a person who sacrifices homelife, TV… even tender moments,
And, I’ll show you a volunteer.

Show me a person visibly moved at the strains of our National Anthem,
And, I’ll show you a volunteer.

Show me a person who may be asked to give more than just dedication,
And, I’ll show you a volunteer.

Show me a person who is asked to give more… and more… and more,
And, I’ll show you a volunteer.

    Love these quotes as I have my self a website with quotes about life. Thought it would be wise to share my favorite quote: “It’s the choices that make us who we are, and we can always choose to do what’s right.” – Peter Parker
