We are the helpers. We are placed where we are most needed. Even when we are feeling lost or hopeless, we know that we will do what it takes to aid those who need it.
We are the workers. We do what we can when we can. We give it our best efforts, knowing that a job well done may not give immediate external rewards, but there is still gratification for the effort we put forth.
We are those who care. We wonder if we care too much because it hurts when things appear to be going wrong. Then, we wonder if we care too little because we didn't catch things early enough. Is it because we didn't care enough to understand what was going on - or is it because we cared too much and were blinded. In the end, what matters is that we recognize that others care as well. We all care too much. We all care too little.
We will be the bridge-builders. We will build bridges between those who help, those who work and those who care - though they do what they do on opposite sides of the flowing waters. But, how will we build those bridges? What must we do when the storm fills the banks with angry waters and a swirling mass that threatens to suck us under?
The answer is actually quite simple. What we must do is:
Be the helpers.
Be the workers.
Be those who care.
And be the bridge builders.
Then we can move forward together.
