"a change agent to impact the lives of others"

* Two social workers were walking through a rough part of the city in the evening. They heard moans and muted cries for help from a back lane. Upon investigation, they found a semi-conscious man in a pool of blood. "Help me, I've been mugged and viciously beaten" he pleaded. The two social workers turned and walked away. One remarked to her colleague: "You know the person that did this really needs help."
* A social worker is facing a mugger with a gun. "Your money or your life!" says the mugger. "I'm sorry," the social worker answers, "I am a social worker, so I have no money and no life."

what? these jokes are a little cheesy? i had no idea.
today i started my last classes, hooray. six more weeks and i'll be done with class and after a short internship in colorado i'll be an official social worker. i'm going to be doing my internship with boulder county social services in the child protection division. i'm kind of nervous, but isn't everyone when you start a new job? i'm really looking forward to being done with school and finally being able to use all the stuff i've been learning.

Kristen, I know I've said this before, but I'm really glad that there's people like you that are willing to make helping the "unlovables" your vocation. I think Jesus is proud.
