"Everyone has the power of greatness, not for fame, but greatness, because greatness is determined by service."
~Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.


Give a hungry man a bite to eat
A piece of bread and a slice of meat
Give a shivering child a coat to make her warm
Loan your umbrella to someone caught in a storm
It doesn’t have to be something grand or extravagant
It’s grandeur depends upon the motive held by the one from whom the gift was sent
When you help another your soul is thereby rewarded
Your love makes you worthy of all the gifts god has accorded
 
"If you can't feed a hundred people, then just feed one."                  ~Mother Teresa
