Happy New Year!
I’d like to take this time to wish everyone a safe and Happy New Year! As 2012 has begun, you should take this opportunity to see this year as the year of new opportunities, and new beginnings! The older we get and the more time passes by, the more concerned we are with self improvement. What better way to start off the year by fulfilling your New Year’s Resolution of becoming a better citizen by engaging yourself within your community. Lawyers to the Rescue (LTTR) is always seeking pro-bono attorney volunteers to assist in our Legal Clinics the third Saturday of every month. At the clinic we help the homeless obtain the legal assistance they could not get elsewhere. The service our clients receive can be life changing, like it was for Ms. Amat-Martinez last December. Imagine being able to change someone’s life through LTTR?
Now, everyone’s New Year’s Resolutions are different, but there is one thing they all have in common: the pursuit of life-changing self improvement methods to live a healthier and happier life– free of stress and toxicity. There is something about giving back to others that makes these feelings possible, and I encourage you to take some time out of your busy schedule every once in a while to give back to the less fortunate. A sense of peace and fulfillment will overwhelm you.
