“Character Matters. We are Accountable for Our Influence.”
I hear a lot of people people, especially celebrities telling people that they aren’t role models. If this were a year ago, I would’ve agreed. But now, I know that simply isn’t true. Every one is a role model to SOMEONE. You don’t have to be rich or famous to be a role model. Whether you’re working as a school teacher, a CEO of a major company, or a Pop Star, what you do and who you are matters. How you treat people means something. I know it’s difficult to accept, (I had a hard time accepting this) but somebody is always watching. And whether we like it or not, we have an impact on the world. In my opinion, this generation has lost sight of what it means to have character, integrity, HONOR. We are accountable for our influence, and we have to start acting like it.
