Not a day goes by without our being called upon to help one anotherat home, at work, on the street, on the phone. . . . We do what we can.

How much is enough?MoreNot a day goes by without our being called upon to help one another—at home, at work, on the street, on the phone. . . . We do what we can. Yet so much comes up to complicate this natural response: Will I have what it takes? How much is enough? How can I deal with suffering? And what really helps, anyway?In this practical helpers companion, the authors explore a path through these confusions, and provide support and inspiration fo us in our efforts as members of the helping professions, as volunteers, as community activists, or simply as friends and family trying to meet each others needs. Here too are deeply moving personal accounts: A housewife brings zoo animals to lift the spirits of nursing home residents- a nun tends the wounded on the first night of the Nicaraguan revolution- a police officer talks a desperate father out of leaping from a roof with his child- a nurse allows an infant to spend its last moments of life in her arms rather than on a hospital machine. From many such stories and the authors reflections, we can find strength, clarity, and wisdom for those times when we are called on to care for one another. How Can I Help? reminds us just how much we have to give and how doing so can lead to some of the most joyous moments of our lives.
