The Human Needs Day was a very special
program day to me. On this program, it gave me the opportunity to open my eyes
and see what is out in the world. It made me realize how some people are less
fortunate, and don’t have the same opportunities as others.
event that I did was tour Adam’s Place. This was my first time going because I
never heard of Adam’s Place. So, while visiting Adam’s Place, I was quite
impressed by what I witnessed. It was great to see that the elderly or disabled
have different options to have fun. Moreover, it was great that their family
members can visit and spend the night with them.
One of the events
that stood out to me was going to the Salvation Army. I was able to tour the
place, and hear some of the stories that take place there. While touring the
Salvation Army, I started to fully understand what homeless people go through.
Prior to that, I had a slightly biased opinion about the homeless. From my
perspective, I didn’t understand what people had to struggle, or had only one
choice to make.
In addition, one of the most
valuable lessons that I took from the program day was the importance of
volunteering. By volunteering, you are helping others understand that’s a light
at the end of the tunnel. You can help them understand that they can put their
mind to anything, and have faith in everything that they do. By doing this, you
have inspired them to discover what life is and how they can make it.
