But those things can not be the motive because they will not sustain you.
They wont sustain the countless hours that so many volunteer behind the scenes.
They wont sustain you when you have to make the hard decisions.
They wont sustain you when in order to do the greatest good and the right thing, you have to let your heart break once again.
What does sustain is LOVE.
A love to go on even when its hard.
A love that holds on to the hope that you are making a real difference, even if its not always obvious.
A love that continues to give even when it hurts.
It is a pure divine love, one that transcends time and is greater than anything we may face.
The amazing thing is that through our trials, that love is perfected, and our resolve remains. We continue to empower those experiencing unjust suffering by providing them with the basic resources.
Why? Because that’s what love asks of us.
