Why Erin Chose AmeriCorps Service: “There’s an Irish story about a man who gets to the gates of heaven and asks to enter” Erin said. “St. Peter replies ’Of course. Just show us your scars.’ The man asks ‘What scars? I have no scars.’ St. Peter says ‘What a pity. Was there nothing worth fighting for?’ ”
