Being involved is what brings purpose to life. Once you step out of your life and into the life of another you find out what life really means. You find that life is about relationships. It’s about seeing the joy on other's faces. It’s about making a difference. It’s using what you have been given to give back to those who are not as fortunate as you. You’re able to help lift heads that hang down and strengthen feeble hearts. ~Landon Stoker
