My life should be unique it should be an alms a battle a conquest a medicine -Ralph Waldo Emerson Two years ago this December I began taking bag lunches to downtown Charlotte to aid homeless people I was inspired after participating in an activity called Room in the Inn The Room in the Inn provides a place for those who do not have homes to sleep or a warm meal for an evening I was not only shocked after participating in such an event I was ashamed of myself I was ashamed that I could have ever been so ignorant not to notice these types of people before but furthermore I was ashamed that I took every simple luxury I possessed for granted I learned that the soup kitchen located in the city did not provide sufficient service to those that needed food and a place to say This was extremely disheartening Charlotte just the one year before had been voted the Third most unfriendly city to homeless At the time I was two years less mature and needless to say I was naive My idea of service was to begin a valiant conquest to make an enormous difference in a huge area As I began to take action I started over a vast area of city and tried to help hundreds of people In reality the affect I was making was miniscule As time passed and my thoughts of service evolved so did my approach I realized that the only way to help was to start from the inside and work my way out So I started working on a much smaller more personal level I actually took the time to get to know those I was attempting to help and develop personal relationships I took down far less food and allowed myself to spend more time in a certain area to become recognized and hopefully even accepted This in retrospect
