Veterans Village: "I hope one day we can find homes for all the veterans there."


From MC
“When autumn darkness falls, what we will remember are the small acts of kindness: a cake, a hug, an invitation to talk, and every single rose. These are all expressions of a nation coming together and caring about its people.” - Jens Stoltenberg
The second time I went to the village I had my mom come with me and she helped by bringing / making homemade red velvet cakes. And once setting the cakes in the room I assisted Dr. Soldani in bringing things up to the room. This time I felt more comfortable, like I knew what to do and helped others who hadn’t been before.
This experience in helping the veterans really brightened my day. This time seeing how big their smiles were once they saw the red velvet cake and it was home made. It just really brings me joy to help others. Any time I do a good deed it makes me want to do more and I would like to continue helping with the veteran’s village even after I am out of Dr. Soldani’s class. My mom even wants to get involved and help. This is such an amazing thing and I am glad I could be part of it. And I hope that it touches those students who also did it so Dr. Soldani does not have to do it alone. And I hope one day we can find homes for all the veterans there.
