Know This Place

Visiting terminally ill client at the hospice. Meeting with coordinator of volunteers. Volunteers everywhere, it seems, at all times, in multiple roles.

Say to one that it seems that those volunteering are there helping others because they have been there before, helping terminally ill family members or friends. Volunteer nods.

We’re all like that.

Seems that if one is touched by loss, part of the turnaround is the giving back. Loss could be of a family member or of self. The one from the shelter going back to help, once out.

Wanted to do this in relation to crash, burn and recovery.

Different result.
