Giving and receiving

Even though one comes to 'give', many volunteers realize after a short while that they 'receive' a lot.  Or, as one teacher who often comes in the week-end to help, said : "My life has changed by coming here.  Many things are easier to relativize."  In this way, these people who are seen as 'misfits', have a message for our socitey,  not only because of their authenticity.  Consider in how many circles, even in those of young people, it is necessary to act different than you really are, to put on a mask, so you can be part of the group?
