That is the question.
When is it giving.
When is it Loving.
When is it greed
To Give or not to Give
of ones self or money.
Is money worth more than time?
Are actions worth less then a dime?
Some give quality time.
Some give less then a dime.
Some risk their lives for others.
Certainly, they are the heroes.
In our world, no man is an island,
nor is a woman less then a man.
So, to risk all you have for another
is to show a love like no other.
Take a bullet for your friend,
take a stand against evil men,
or place yourself in harm's way,
or bravely risk all your days.
Those are the actions of true charity.
Faith in mankind, hope in God,
are the makings of a person
So, my heroes are paid,
some to be the heroes they are.
Others to support them and us
against evil near and far.
My heroes are our military,
who daily face death.
The loss of all their days
for the security of our families.
No, the're not non-profit nor are they unsung,
but they are the true heroes among us
and their efforts must not be undone.
The USO is my choice of charities, for the men and woman who grace their non-profit activities. If you wish to help these needy souls who are daily in harms way, please contact the nearest USO and give or volunteer at least a day.
Thank you for your interest in volunteering with the USO. Our volunteers are our greatest asset. The USO centers could use your help.
If you do not have a USO center near you, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about helping in your local area as a USO representative.
