They quote that I chose to use for this essay is “I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel”- Maya Angelou
After purchasing the care packages for the veterans made me feel good on the inside. I just wanted the dude I was buying supplies to get everything out of that store. I went in the store looking for shaving cream and razors just like everyone else in the class did. But then I went into cleaning area and this idea came to my head. I was trying to think outside of the box. I was trying to think of something to purchase that no one else in the class bought someone else. The thing I thought about was dish detergent and Clorox. Everyone must wash their dishes after they eat. I also purchased some dish rags to go with the detergent. I wanted to buy some Comet and some all-purpose cleaner but I remember our professor telling us not to go over board because the other veterans might get jealous. After buying the dish detergent, Clorox and dish rags I had to leave the store because they did not have any full-size towels. So, I had to walk to Dollar General to buy the full-size towels. I went to the isle with all the bathroom supplies and I saw this nice gray towel with these designs stitched in them. I put it in my buggy and I picked up the matching rag. I honestly do not know if I was out of line for getting the matching rag. So, that is why after I bought it and put everything that I had in the reusable grocery bag. I hid the rag inside of the towel because I thought that you were going to check the bag when I dropped it off to your room. I made sure I took of the tag so if you did find it. I could not take it back if you wanted me too.
Even though I was not there to witness the veterans opening the care packages. I know that we made there day or maybe even there week. I know that our class put smiles on each veteran in that room face. And the question I have for you and the veterans is how did they end up in that veteran’s village. I know when I was planning on going the military they were feeding me ideas that I would be well taken care of. But how can be well taken care of while you are in the service and be living in a place life that.
