Conner:Serving the veterans helped me gain a bigger picture of the world


As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.” by Audrey Hepburn. The last part of the quote “one for helping yourself, the other for helping others”, speaks to me. Like the quote said as I get older, I understand more about this society and wanting to help out more people. Even through, there WQ millions of people that need help, but I can start helping them a little at a time. At the veteran village dinner, my main job was to fill up each to go boxes was beans and Mac and cheese, and serving them to the Veterans. I also took the trash out afterwards.
Before the veterans village dinner, I wondered why Dr. Soldani is willing to feed the veteran for past couple years. But after the dinner, I reflected on the experience and found the answer. Serving the veterans helped me gain a bigger picture of the world, I learned that this world ain’t what it seems to be. I am glad that I was able help the troop once protected our country.
The experience I had at the Veterans Village dinner changed my mind. People should be encouraged to help out others, without expecting getting anything in return. Helping the people that need help will make this world a better place.
