There is a basic human instinct to help one another, whether it is a young man helping the elderly women cross the street, or a family who goes into a soup kitchen on Christmas to serve the homeless. Everyone needs a little help once in a while. Yes, some need more help than others, but I believe it is it is our duty as humans to give these people the help they need, a duty that comes from a natural desire to serve.
