Short Answer 3: “Volunteerism” and “Litany” A = The idea of community service applies to “Never a Better Time for Volunteerism” because volunteering would help the economy, while in “Litany” people should volunteer simply because it’s the right thing to do. SP = This is shown in “Volunteerism” when the author writes P = “In today’s down economy…it’s time for the return of…the volunteer” E = By stating that the economy is down and that as a result we need more volunteers, community service applies to the editorial as an idea that would help the economy.
