The Experience at Hope Rescue Mission

My heart is full. The experience on Saturday was one of humility and realization that life is always good.

I sat down with a man named Julian while I was there and he told me his tale of sorrow. I could only listen and provide consolation as he spoke about the loss of his mother, his home, even his dog. I let him know how much I loved dogs and we both agreed they were always there for you when you got home, waiting to love you.

I wanted so much to give him a hug and let him know it was all going to be okay, but I truthfully didn’t know. I explained to him how his greatest strength was still within him and that I would be back at the end of the month and I hoped to see him when I returned.

When I asked that we all do a charitable function each quarter as a group, I knew it would fill my soul because helping your fellow man always does, but I never knew it could overflow. I want to thank every single member that joined me on Saturday to help those less fortunate. I can’t tell you how much it means to me and I hope to see you all at the next charitable function.

You guys are awesome and I am so proud to be your president. It may come off as corny, but I don’t care, these first three month have been amazing. Thank you.
