Personal Stories About ‘Reaching Out’

  • REACHING OUT

    Touching One Life

    I volunteered with the Challenger League, a baseball team for young adults with physical disabilities. One day, a young man hit a home run and we ran around the bases - nothing unusual. However, it was unusually quiet in the stands. Later, I was told that this young man was autistic and didn't like people...

I learned from store owners that he suffered schizophrenia and was pretty much a loner. He was always very polite to me when he came...

Although I didn't have him as my teacher, when I came to him for help with my troubles, he gladly opened his arms to me. I think that...

This is touching.
Ashley, victorville

If you see someone new at the school you just walk over and say hi.
Chris Napolion, Vicksburg

This commercial really inspired me! I was in Sunday School a while ago, and the ten-year-old granddaughter of the teacher was there. She doesn't go to our church, and she was sitting at a table with the teacher and the assistant. I could tell she wanted to sit with somebody else without having to ask, so I asked her to sit beside me. Her whole face just lit up, and she thanked me again and again. It felt so good to do that, I try to do it every day at least once. Thank you!
