Community Service Encouragement Letter
What is it that everyone can and should do, but which most people do not do? The answer is “significant community service” – the key word being significant. Many individuals can rightly claim that they perform a good minor deed or two in order to assist needy people and/or causes. However, this service is not enough! A grade of “D” on a test is theoretically a passing mark, but should this score be the goal? Modest volunteerism cannot be accepted as the norm for our country.
It is my belief that we all owe a debt to our nation’s heritage greater than we could ever possibly accumulate in our lifetime. However, most people do not understand that significant community service is to the future of America as medical treatment is to a sickly individual. Without all of us continually and properly participating in curing society’s ills, America’s potential can never be realized, while suffering and deprivation will unnecessarily exist at a higher level. Would you be proud publicly to announce your lifetime community service efforts?
I am certain that you are aware of the word “attitude,” but do you know that, if each letter of our alphabet were assigned a number in order of its appearance, the sum for “attitude” would equal exactly 100? Many adults have doubtlessly expressed to you that 100% devotion (or a superlative attitude) is a paramount criterion for accomplishing any task or fulfilling any responsibility. The dilemma is that many citizens do not comprehend that community service should be incorporated as part of their lifetime routine.
