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.
"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.

"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."
Rubio was 30 in 2001. If he'd really wanted to serve he probably had a couple of options then.
