Q: What does service before self mean?
A: I think that service before self means that in any time or place you would help someone or your community. You would put others before yourself and your personal needs.
Oprah Winfrey is one example. She built a school out in Africa for the little kids so that they can get an education and be able to do something with themselves. Another example is a veteran (army, navy, air force, coastal guard and etc.) because they risk their lives and go fight to protect the country from danger.
Something my family and I do is sponsor kids in countries where they don’t eat a meal at all or receive clean water. We help and send money out to them so that they can have clean water instead of unsanitary water. The fun part is that we also write letters to them to see how they’re doing and send them things to do so it’s a really fun and cool experience that we enjoy doing.
Quick Write: What does service before self mean?
What I think service before self means is that you should volunteer to apply to help someone else before thinking about yourself, or, to put someone before yourself. For example, our parents put their kids before themselves because they want us to do great in life. Another example is the Army. They put their country before themselves to help protect us all in the country.
