I'll show you a volunteer

Show me a person who spends endless hours in training without pay, and I'll show you a volunteer. Show me a person where a cry for help brings split-second dispatch, and I'll show you  a volunteer. Show me a person who is devastated when lives are lost or maimed, and I'll show you a volunteer. Show me a person who is graciously welcomed as a next-door neighbor, and I'll show you a volunteer. Show me a person who takes ridicule more than compliments, and I'll show you a volunteer. Show me a person whose car is garaged with the grille facing out, and I'll show you a volunteer. Show me a person who sacrifices homelife, TV, even tender moments, and I'll show you a volunteer. Show me a person visibly moved at the strains of our National Anthem, and I'll show you a volunteer. Show me a person who may be asked to give more than just dedication, and I'll show you a volunteer. Show me a person who is asked to give more and more and more...........

AND I'LL SHOW YOU A VOLUNTEER........
