Powerful Words Teens & Adults – Courage W3
Week 3: This week, we’re talking about standing up for what you believe is right and fair. There is a lot to speak out against and for these days. Even so, many people choose not to get involved at all even if they feel that there are grave injustices happening right in front of them. It takes courage to step up– whether we’re talking about confronting friends or confronting one’s leaders. As Ralph W. Sockman once said; “The test of courage comes when we are in the minority. The test of tolerance comes when we are in the majority.” What are some key issues for you? How do you speak out against or for what you believe is right and fair? This week, your Powerful Thought Assignment is to take inventory on the issues that really mean something to you– are you keeping them front and center in your mind or are they are they on the back burner? How can you show your support for what you believe is right and fair?
