     I wrote an email to a mentor today about me wanting to start volunteering at Service Space as I miss its community so much. After reading this I very much agree with you take on how service is different than helping as helping makes it seem as if a inequality exists which thought it may not seem can be a negative thing. I will now make sure when people need anything from me, that I serve them with all my heart and not help! Also, thanks,  for helping me realize that words of the same meaning at the same time can be so different and that when we are by the side of others we are there with a desire to serve and not help :) Reading this was a perfect way to end my night!
