"When it visits your home state, when it impacts a community you know well, it really gives you pause to think a little bit about your service to your country and where you can be most useful to your country," Rubio said.Rubio was 30 in 2001. If he'd really wanted to serve he probably had a couple of options then.
"My family and I will be praying about all this and we'll see what I need to do next with my life in regards to how I can best serve."

A big pet peeve of mine is how we maintain this little fiction that being one of the most powerful people in the country is a way to "serve." Want to serve? Go empty some bedpans at a VA hospital. That's service. Being a US senator? That's a cushy, powerful job, which almost guarantees you a lifetime of lucrative employment.
