Laura Bush Texas, who moti- salutes "^^^ 6^ P^°P^^ volunteers !^''ft'f ,n^'^- idated 120-year- Continmd church whose fiwnpagei ^^^j congregation is mostly elderly and poor. People came from miles around to help. While volunteers pitched in to paint, clean and repaii' the chui-ch, a pianist played hymns and the church members sang. The event organizer said, "I went to Russia, Switzerland and France last year... and Make A Difference Day was the highlight of my yeai'." What motivates you to volunteer? For me, helping a child read and learn is one of life's greatest rewards. That's what motivates my work as first lady. And this October, I plan to pi'actice what I preach and volunteer to teach in a public school during Teach for Ameiica Week. One person alone cannot do everything. But one person alone can do something. One of the best volunteering stories I know is about a woman named Helen (Joodinim who earned an award for her outstanding volunteer efforts at age 88. At the awai'ds ceremony, she told my husband the following story; When Helen was 81, she was mugged. She was knocked to the ground and robbed. For eight months, a broken pelvis kept her from her volunteer work. On her fii'st day back to the hospital, a staff member told Helen how angry he was about what had happened. Helen just smiled and said, "Only one man knocked me down. Two came and picked me up." In life, it's not what knocks us down that matters. It's the people who help us up. Each of us can be one of those people. On this 10th anniversary celebration, I salute everyone who works to make the United States of America a better place to live and realize our di-eams. The people who pailicipate in Make A Difference Day are proof that Americans are compassionate people. Volunteera ai-e among America's true heroes.
