As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others. - Audrey Hepburn.
This quote is something that I feel everyone should go by because helping someone is the right thing to do. With my service project I decided to help my mother clean up her house by cleaning out her closet, tearing up papers, folding clothes, and cooking. I love my mom so much she is everything to me so if I can do anything to make her feel or make her life easier. The reason that I decided to use my mom for service because recently my mom got hit by a car she was on break at work heading to ross and the car hit her and they tried ride away without taking the responsibility. I was so hurt and i cried because I thought that i had lost my mom to someone who did not deserve to be behind the wheel. One day my mom called me and cried to me about how her hand was hurting so bad she could not move her hand or do anything for herself. I went home for a whole weekend and I helped her by driving her around to all her appointments making sure she eat, doing all laundry and folding all clothes. I feel like this let me understand how important it is to give back because people will remember how you made them feel and respect you more because you took time out of your day to think of them. I feel like this would impact a community because I feel the world would be a better place if everyone just wanted to help one another and give a helping hand to someone in need.
