It truly has been an honor serving these wonderful people and all of their diverse personalities. Through all of the stress, the pain, the loss, the conflicts, it was all worth it for the love, the caring, and the realization that we are not building a community for our city, we’re building a community for the world. I think that all of these people can become outstanding leaders and that I’ve done all I can to help show them that they don’t have to be “special” to be a leader. You just have to care enough. Even though we’re approaching the end, I’m satisfied. Everything that I’ve wanted to say to them has mostly been said throughout the year. I hope they can read my heart and know that I wish them the best wherever the go. Because you don’t have to have any type of leadership position to be a leader. You can lead by example.
I asked them why they stayed in Key Club this long. I know that they’re not going to be able to find a satisfactory answer by just discussing it with their peers for 10 minutes. No, this is more than that. This is a lesson that will last a lifetime. I hope that they will forever integrate caring into their lifestyle. Because I know that I will serve, not any one organization, but I will always simply serve others. And I’m not saying that just to say it. I value it. Key Club has taught me that this is one of my core values. And when you value something, you will live by it.
