I’m grateful people step in when there’s a catastrophe and act quickly. I’m not trying to exclude anyone, I’m just grateful that each and every one of us has the capacity to do well in our own lives, and provide help to those who are struggling and need love and companionship. The article by R. Scott Lloyd illustrates this kind of selfless service. ("Saints giving, receiving service in storm-ravaged Arkansas," May 16).
How many times does a person think about the impact of a smile or simple thank you on another person? He or she may not know what that individual’s going through, but the simple acknowledgement makes the person’s day. If a person’s life can be changed by such a simple, caring acknowledgement, or an act of selfless service, then how much more are we able to do to make the world a better place?
