    All of us in the world of national service and volunteering lost a guiding light with the passing of Robert Sargent "Sarge" Shriver. Sarge was a tireless and determined builder of ways that people can improve the lives of their fellow citizens. He leaves a powerful legacy of innovative programs including Peace Corps, VISTA, Foster Grandparents, Head Start, Legal Services, Job Corps, and more. His initiatives during the 1960s helped shape an era and dared millions of young Americans to live out their ideals.

    The scriptures that Dr. King often preached say, "From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked". Dr. King realized he was given a calling much larger than himself. That calling was to lead a nation to another level of responsibility. Dr. King's leadership inspired people of color to go beyond what we could have dreamed. He committed his life to equal opportunity for all and his legacy reaches wider than he could have imagined.
