366 days of gratitude

A weekend at the National Party’s Mainland conference and three days sorting books for Rotary’s annual Bookarama has reinforced for me the importance of volunteers.

They’re the ones who form the civil society, defined as the aggregate of non-governmental organisations and institutions that manifest interests and will of citizens.

They’re the people who give their time, talents and often money in a myriad of ways to help others.

They’re the ones who believe we must all pay our rent on earth and act on that belief.

They’re the ones for whom I’m grateful today.
