me… I’ll go!

I don’t remember exactly when I heard the call however,
I know I did and my response was send me…I’ll go!
I am a graduate of the University of Hard Knocks and enrolled
in the University of Life where I continue in Pursuit of my Masters
Does one ever really become a master?
know I serve the Master and that is truly why I answered this
I reflect on the why…I remember at a very young age seeing
a two year old baby girl in a tiny white coffin-cause of death-a
blow to the head by her stepfather who wanted her to stop crying
or was it my 13 year old cousin killed by a bullet on the way
to school by a classmate or maybe it was being raped at 15 by
a cop. Was it the cruelty I saw when kids would hurt animals for
fun or my friend who dyed from an eating disorder I never knew
about? I’m not sure. Perhaps it was seeing a child severely

My desire is to strive to be the change I want to see. One day
at a time, working on being a better me! And may G-d grant me
the courage not to give up on what I think is right-even though
I think it is hopeless, may I press on and finish the race!
In His service & yours.
