The volunteer work，the great work
Dear little cousin.
I'm glad to receive a letter from you. You mentioned that you wanted to being a volunteer, eagerly, who is always energetic, glamouvous and able to have close connections with something really “big”. But do you at all understand the whole meaning of being a volunteer? Have you ever thought about volunteer work's greatness to the world around?
Volunteer work is more than “good-looking”, as you mentioned. It means commitment, enthusiasim from the bottom of heart and responsibility. Never have you seen a volunteer complain much, right? Those volunteers, especially who participated the vesuce work of the May 12 earthquake, donated all their time and energy to the great volunteer work, some of which might be dangerous and tiresome. Even some senior high, just the same age as me, volunteered to “fight the battle”, which made me ashame of myself, for I could have done the same but I didn't.
Meanuhile, volunteer work, because of its greatness, is important to promote the well-being of individuals, families, communitives and world at large. In this busy, modern society, people rush for almost everything. But few people'd stop and think about how life should go on. Too busy are we that we lose the sense of connection with families, communities, the world and even our true selves. Volunteer work gives us a chance to be real human being. Loosened from day-to-day routine, we are more likely to act like a cell of this beautiful world. Thus, all things, like families, communities, world and indiciduals will be konded together to work for “the Greater Good”.
My little cousin, I do hope my words will make you twely understant volunteer work, for it is such great work, full of commitment, value and responsibility.
