Children Learn What They Live

If children live with criticism,
They learn to condemn.
If children live with hostility,
They learn to fight.
If children live with ridicule,
They learn to be shy.
If children live with shame,
They learn to feel guilty.
If children live with encouragement,
They learn confidence.
If children live with tolerance,
They learn to be patient.
If children live with praise,
They learn to appreciate.
If children live with acceptance,
They learn to love.
If children live with approval,
They learn to like themselves.
If children live with honesty,
They learn truthfulness.
If children live with security,
They learn to have faith in themselves and others.
If children live with friendliness,
They learn the world is a nice place in which to live.

Character. Acceptance. Tolerance. Charity. These are important words that are often used without much regard, and that needs to change! It should not matter how much a person donates to charity. If his character defies the organization’s mission, his money should not be accepted. I know that’s easier said than done, but it gives the impression of being “bought.” I know the struggle is real, but we must heal!

We need less racism as well as other forms of hatred:

acceptance

Because (like it or not)…
