The Volunteer

The Volunteer

Each heartbeat of the volunteer 
Exudes a hope for mankind that
Embodies lessons of mercy, 
Honour, and compassion; equal

That higher calling made to all
Believers. The power of...love. 
Not just love for friends, but strangers.
Daily sacrificing their lives

And their selves on the alter of
Humanity. For no other
Reason but that calling breathed
Deep within each drop of blood...That

"Greater love has no man than this:
to lay down his life for his friends. "

In Honour of my son
In Memory of my husband 
And to all "Good Samaritans" in the world
