 The Parable of Responsibility 

 Everybody, Somebody, Anybody, and Nobody were members of a group.
 There was an important job to do and Everybody was asked to do it.
Everybody was sure that Somebody would do it.  Anybody would have done it, but Nobody did it.
Somebody got angry because it was Everybody’s job.
Everybody thought Anybody would do it, but Nobody realized that Anybody wouldn’t do it.
It ended up that Everybody, blamed Somebody, when Nobody did, what Anybody could have done.

  Unknown author of condensed version of Charles Osgood’s – A Poem About Responsibility.

Are you Somebody, Nobody, Anybody or the Body that will do what needs to be done?

It is sometimes difficult to explain why people volunteer.  But the best answer is:  There are those with a special gift and a special touch for helping others.

Don't ever question the value of volunteers. Noah's Ark was built by volunteers; the Titanic was built by professionals.
