Our personal responsibility in citizenship

word of month character
“Every good citizen adds to the strength of a nation.” In a time when the world is exploding with extremism in so many sectors, when there is a lack of tolerance and peacefulness – each of us bear a responsibility to raise our voice for those qualities. There are no spiritual writings or philosophies ever in the history of man that calls for harming other humans.

It only makes sense to call on every member of society to live a more purposeful life, to show reverence for life itself. If we are parents or an adult that influences children, we must raise them in a culture of character to be compassionate and idealistic. Culture is our belief system as a society. We may have all the rules and laws in the world, but we as families, schools, government, workplaces must create a culture of peace – understood in its broadest terms.
