My Humanitarian Work

Every day, I feed the hungry.

I nurse the sick.

I clothe the naked.

Every day, I serve and protect. I rescue people from dangerous situations. I identify new ways to keep people safe. I have not yet joined the peacekeeping force, but I expect to soon.

I teach English and help people with their Physics lessons. I also teach History, Ethics, Theology, Music, and the other Sciences.

I’ve donated my organs to the cause of giving people life and health.

Every day, I strive to improve the living environment of others.

I counsel and comfort those in pain. I give encouragement. I wipe tears away.

Every day, all day.

24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

I’ll never get a paid vacation. I’ll never be offered a promotion or a raise. I’ll never be awarded the Nobel Prize or an honourary doctorate.

I’ll face the disapproving looks of many of my peers. They thought I should do something “useful” with my life.

As if raising the next generation of world-shapers wasn’t a good use of my life.

I’m a stay-at-home mom, and I am not ashamed.
