Mt. Morris Junior High

I’ve spent the last four days at Mt. Morris Junior High presenting to the 6th and 7th graders.  This morning, in one of the seventh grade classes, a student’s pledge hit me as pretty impressive.  I took a photo with my phone, which turned out to be of only so-so quality.  I’ve embedded it below, but the text reads:

I, Jillian, pledge to be a hero-in-waiting by expanding my heroic imagination.  I will achieve this by focusing on the following attributes and actions:

  • Not being a liar
  • Being a great friend
  • Donating my time to someone who needs it
  • Never sit and watch someone suffer

If our children can make pledges like this and follow through, I think we’ll be living in a pretty amazing world.
