I was looking at the Penguin Reader's Guide again and they posted the following questions -- Have you ever known anyone like Mortenson? OR Have you ever had the experience of making a difference yourself through acts of generosity, aid, or leadership? I can't think of anyone I know personally that has garnered attention like Mortenson, but I certainly know many "unsung heroes"...those that make a difference everyday through acts of generosity, aid, or leadership. How about the folks across Anderson who volunteer in places like the Christian Center, a local Food Pantry, or Alternatives? How about those serving on the mission field. John Ackerman's work in Haiti comes to mind. I'm a member of Rotary and our motto is "Service Above Self". There are many other organizations, to which many of us belong, that make a difference.
How would you answer these questions.
