    Ms. Remen makes a great distinction between helping and service. My observation has been that help can be void of compassion. Service speaks to what anchors one's soul. However, if help could be used in a context that aids in evolving the self, many of us could glean to the words of a great man by the name of Booker T. Washington who once said: "If you want to lift yourself up, lift up someone else." This could undoubtedly resemble what service looks like.
