I have some discussions with a few people about volunteering in a neighboring town, one which is literally across the street from our little community. These few people seem to have an issue with that. Why not volunteer where you can? The needs of the people have no boundaries. Do their needs stop where another town begins? No. The need is great.Volunteering does something to you. It makes you look through the eyes of others. It gets you out of your tunnel vision, and it help you focus on the needs of others, which makes your needs seem minor. This is good mental therapy. You get to see the blessings you have and be thankful for them.
