“I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community and as long as I live, it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can.”
-George Bernard Shaw
Often times we may question where is that we belong in this ever changing and challenging world. Irish playwright George Bernard Shaw mentions in today’s quote that we belong to the community, are able to decide to do whatever we can to serve in that community and is a privilege to do so. To me it is the community I live in and the people within it that have helped make me into the person I am today. My choice is to serve others in any capacity possible. Life is a gift and needs to be treated as such. What better way is there than to give back to others? To help pay it forward. We belong to our community and the community belongs to us. It is cyclical much like love is. We must always remember this.
