About 3am!ReflectionDoing community service really has taught me a lot, especially Relay for Life and Christmas with the Kids.It was so rewarding seeing the kids get their presents and see the survivors walk.They were so appreciative for all we did for them.What I Learned.I learned that waking up at 6am isn't always a bad thing.I learned wasting a whole Saturday doing community service isn't always a waste!It is a good thing helping the unfortunate, it makes you feel better about yourself at the end of the day.Pros and ConsProsHelping peopleSeeing them smileMakes you feel better about yourselfIts for a good causeLooks good on a resumeConsSometimes its hard workIt can be discouragingOften there is something better you would like to be doing
