Morning Announcements

Wednesday– October 24,  2012


Good morning, Morgan.    U.S. Brigadier General Sherian Cadoria  once told a story about a childhood incident that made a big impact on her life.  She and her brother and sister went shopping, and the cashier gave them back a penny too much change.  When they got home and told their mom what had happened, she made them walk three miles back to the store to return the money.  She punished all three of them because she believed that one of them should have known it was wrong and spoken up.

Brigadier General Cadoria learned a lesson she never forgot.  Remember, it takes only one person in a group to say, “This is wrong,”  It takes only one person to make a difference.  The next time you are faced with peer pressure, do the right thing.  Remember this story and be a leader!
