Time magazine is once again placing the country’s enthusiasm for national service and placing it front and center in the mainstream media. The cover story this week includes a list of Twenty-one ways to serve America. From my own perspective, I am not sure I learned much from reading Miley Cyrus’ opinions on service, but if the idea is to make service mainstream, I am for it.
