“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.” Veterans village was an interesting time and yet it was a meaningful one on my first time being apart of something like that. When I went two Thursdays ago, I had gone and brought mixed fruit cups! Now veteran’s village sounds self-explanatory and I knew they would appreciate pretty much anything tasteful we give them, so I was like hell I hope they like these nice fruit cups I gave them!
My people skills and engaging were a big part of the whole experience, it was the whole experience. I say that because yes, we are providing food for them for one day out of the two-week period and they look forward to that. But its not really the food you give them it Is really the look on your face when you talk to them and shake their hand and let them know that you appreciate the hard years in their life, they served for you. It was interesting I talked to a few of them and got to know them and was surprised that some of them were from Florida and Panama City an area where I am very familiar with and have many of my family members around.
Thank you Dr. Soldani for this experience I can honestly say I like helping people in ways I can if possible, but this was a great experience. It made me feel good inside only to know that I did the right thing and not only was it for to help my grade, but it really did make me feel good to help those guys out during this time. I highly recommend anybody that wants to do something good for people that would be very appreciative of help. You should go to the veteran’s village in Tallahassee its an awesome time great laughs, and remember if they give you the bell don’t forget to yell “Woohoo!”
