Day 180, July 9

Yesterday I wrote about doing the right thing.  I then found this short passage written by a seven-year-old boy:

"One day I was playing with my friend, and he wanted to watch a movie that I didn't think we should watch.  I called my parents to ask, but no one was home.  We did not watch the movie.  I feel good when I choose the right."

Isn't that a great story?  As a much older adult, I lack the courage this small boy showed.  Sometimes I am unwilling to stand up for what is right because I fear what others will think.  I go along with something because it is easier to do that than to uphold my principles.

Joy for today:  doing the right thing ... again.
