I’m a member of a number of local volunteer organizations. I do it to keep busy, especially doing things that benefit other people and the community as a whole. It brings me a lot of joy – it’s a two-way process: I help others, but I also learn a great deal from those I’m helping. It gives a great deal of satisfaction. When people are happy, communities are stronger, and – in turn – our nation is stronger. I see this whenever I volunteer or travel overseas. It helps internationally and domestically.
