Dickinson is just cool ~ this is so awesome because if everyone took the
time to help others, we would all feel great for doing it and eventually we
all wouldn't need as much help (#805 is one of my personal favs.)

This poem is quite a contrast from Dickinson's own life. However, she
makes an excellent point. If more people lived by this Christian principal
we would have less crime, poverty, and war. An extremely "deep" set of
words...

This poem really touched me and I think that everyone should live life to
the fullest and if someone is in need, even if its out of the way, you
should help them out. You will feel better about yourself and maybe the
world will wake up and realize that its not always about themselves.

This poem clearly express a need for all of us to take note that helping
one another is the only way to save humanity. We must be there when
someone is in need and to hold their hand if the pain of a broken heart is
to strong for one person to endur.
