COLLEGE PARK, MD –
Let’s talk about giving and taking.
Depending on the situation, all of us alternate between the roles of giver and taker numerous times throughout the course of our lives.
Giving can be in the form of monetary assistance (and perhaps that is the most commonly associated form of giving), parental sacrifice, filial piety, and any other example of when two individuals or a group come together and interact in solidarity.
Taking is to be on the receiving end of someone’s giving. It also is to offer a giver an opportunity to express his or her gifts.
