Rachel Naomi Remen wrote “In recent years the question ‘how can I help?’ has become meaningful to many people. But perhaps there is a deeper question we might consider. Perhaps the real question is not ‘how can I help?’, but ‘how can I serve?’ We cannot serve at a distance. We can only serve that to which we are profoundly connected…that which we are willing to touch.”
I have been fortunate to serve Semiahmoo House Society for many years and to be a part of a wonderful service to people in our community to get a better life, a good life, a great life. I also have a brother who uses the services of Semiahmoo House Society which has transformed his life.
The sustainability and health of organizations like Semiahmoo House is critical to the sustainability and health of our society. Whether through career choice, donating, volunteering or becoming a member…it can create that profound connection and an opportunity to be “touched” by an organization that makes an incredible difference in so many lives.
