I Can't Stop; I Need To Save Them All

There's this burning desire in me.
This hatred, when I see wrongdoings.
This heartbreak, when I see sadness.
This affinity for work, and for help; for doling out advice and giving a hand to those in desperate need of a hand.
I feel the need to change the world; I can't help it.
It's a desperate wish, engraved in the center of my very self.

I guess that's why I'm doing this trip.  I am going on what they call a Hero Holiday (I don't like the name; it sounds stuck up to me), put on by Live Different (http://livedifferent.com/).  I am going to the Dominican Republic for ten days in July to build a house, work with the locals and play with the children there.  I'm going to experience a different way of living, and get a feel for how many people in this world live.
The more I think about it, the more I feel like I never want to stop things like this.  Is this destined to be my life?

I guess we'll find out.
