Since my adolescent years, I started to hear the news reported crime stories often in specific towns, and people spoke about impoverished cities and poor-performing schools with a name. I was heartbroken because those who lived there wanted to move out while letting the communities look down upon others. In intermediate school, I did many volunteering activities as a member of the honor society on campus. It developed my passion for serving the community in need. In the same period, one of my favorite TV documentaries showed wealthy individuals going undercover to support multiple local non-profit organizations. This TV documentary delighted me because the wealthy individuals expressed empathy for the city due to the many hardships affecting the vulnerable. In the current society, it is unfortunate when we see naysayers turn their blind eyes towards the homeless, the former prisoners with disenfranchisement, and struggling communities. Humanity works best when heroes improve communities. Serving those in need is not a luxury or a burden of self-care; it is stewardship. We win when everyone wins.— Albert, Santa Ana.
