Volunteering is important for numerous reasons that benefit both the community and the volunteers themselves. When someone donates a handful of time, the difference made is tremendous and it shapes a community for the better while the experience improves the person who donated the time.
Last week our annual three-week peace camp began for nearly 50 children. Every summer I get almost the same emotions. I become so excited about this wonderful experience we offer our children. I just love seeing the younger children begin their first tentative steps in Praise Dancing. I delight in the first art therapy sessions when the children thrive on creative expression and make their own T-shirt designs. I get goosebumps when many voices finally become a choir and the camp participants make a song come alive. Mostly, I realize a deep sense of gratitude and satisfaction as the groups become a community and the children share kindness and respect toward each other.
