My Life Changing Experience
Imagine seeing two young boys who are ten years old, one laying his head on the other one’s shoulder. These two boys are brothers. They are beautiful children, but something about them is different. They seem tired, exhausted, and sad. Beside them is a can, and in it had a few dollar bills with a couple handfuls of change. Do you see the picture yet? These two boys are starving, they are homeless, and they are alone. You might just be picturing this thinking, I may be full of myself, but others actually see these kinds of images every day.
Did you know that 40% of Americans are homeless? That means that 4 out of every 10 people in the United States could be homeless. What would you do if you didn’t have a warm house to come home to every night, or if you had to beg for food because you hadn’t eaten in days? I can’t even imagine not eating supper with my family every night, or not having a house to come home to every day. It is heartbreaking to know that others don’t have it as well as you do in life.
As a youth group member, I was lucky enough to get the chance to go to New Orleans in the summer of 2011. During my stay, I was able to help others in a way that changed my life. When I was helping serve food, picking up trash, and helping to restore a church, I looked at children and families who were receiving that help. Their faces were priceless. It was like they won the lottery. Helping young and old, children, and families who were less fortunate than me, made me realize that I want to help people in some way when I grow up. That’s what made me want to pursue a career in health education after I graduate.
The trip to New Orleans helped me discover some special qualities that I am proud to have. First off, I love people. You could say I am a “people person”. Some like to work on their own, away from people, and that’s okay too! But I love being able to be around others. Being able to talk and listen to others, and offer those
