Personal Stories About ‘Reaching Out’

  • REACHING OUT

    Bad Day

    I was so close to tears. I could feel them just behind my eyelids threatening to spill out any second. I could feel my face crumpling into a little ball, my lip quivering...I needed a friend. I was surrounded by friends, but something was missing. And then I realized. I was having the worst day of my entire life,...

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...

After a horrible day, I sat on the ground crying when I saw someone sit down next to me. I wasn't sure of who it was at first. It was the girl that I hated. But, she held...

This is touching.

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!
