iving takes many forms: There arethose who writechecks to nonproﬁt org-anizations, devote timeand energy to volunteerat fundraisers, knit blan-kets for babies in neona-tal intensive care units,sew dresses out of pillow-cases for impoverishedgirls in developing coun-tries or travel to Cambo-dia to combat sex traf-ﬁcking. I’ve written aboutmost of these types of giving, and in doing sohave found people truly committed to healing atleast a little piece of ourfractured world. Eachtime I interview people who support a cause nearand dear to their hearts, Ihear the same sentiment:Those who give end upgetting the most inreturn: emotional satis-faction, a sense of pur-pose. Giving is by no means aselﬂess endeavor. Norshould it be. Who cares what exactly in the humancondition spurs compas-sion — just so long as weact on that feeling!Over the past three years, I’ve had the privi-lege of seeing some of themost inspiring acts of giving while sitting in onPeer Helping classes atRoseville High School.Most recently, I visitedGranite Bay HighSchool’s version of theprogram (see page 26).I’ve watched as thesestudents embark on whatfor many will be a deﬁn-ing experience in their young lives. I’ve seenthem go from sharing their own life stories, toooften full of pain andheartache, to becoming leaders on campus.They learn how toresolve conﬂict, promoterespect and combat bul-lying. Peer Helpers truly improve the lives of oth-er teens — ones going through depression, bat-tling eating disorders, liv-ing with an abusive par-ent, struggling withhomework, experiment-ing with illegal drugs —by reaching out, listening and telling them they’renot alone.These teens give hopeand kindness. And, whatdoes a Peer Helper get inreturn? That would be abeautiful soul.
