Now is the time....

"When we shrink from the world, our souls shrink, too." I would have to say I agree with this quote. I believe each person has a special gift to share and when we keep that gift hidden we are not only hurting ourselves, we are hurting everyone around us.

I am sure there are times in each of our pasts that we may have stayed quiet or back down from something we believed in, however, I believe this class we all have enrolled in is going to help us make a change in our world. Together we will be able to utilize our gifts and discover our hidden talents.

It is important to speak up for what we believe in, with pride and self respect.

I like the importance you place on human ability and potential, and the connection you draw between these human capacities and their influence on our social situations.

I believe everyone should speak up for what they believe in or when trying to change. It can be very difficult to sometimes when it may not be "kosher" to what you friends believe or you don't want to rock the boat.

Danielle,

Great job! I love the fact that you put emphasis on human responsibility to speak up and be heard.
