Saving LivesPosted: September 1, 2011
Several weeks ago I was walking home from school when I heard some particularly desperate-sounding bleating. I came across a goat kid stumbling about, with an old paint can stuck on its head. I managed to catch it, and wiggle the can off. Freed from the unwanted helmet, the goat happily bounded off.
When I related the story to a fellow volunteer the following day, she had the perfect response: “Now, if anyone asks you whether you made a difference as a Peace Corps volunteer, you can honestly say that you saved a kid’s life.”
