Altruism at Liberty

“We are one” is a phrase we hear all around Liberty all the time. We all believe we follow what this phrase entails – that as a student body and school, we should be accepting of all, supporting each other, promoting equality, looking out for each other, or do anything that a team would do.

But even if we know what “we are one” means, how many of us actually follow these guidelines? How many of us actually make these ideals what we strive for?

It is those few people who actually do that I am thankful for.

I am thankful for those selfless people and what they bring to our school and to me every day. The ones that go out of their way to make someone else’s day better. Who support others in their times of need. The people that don’t judge anyone by what they wear, how they speak, how they act or how they do in school.

These people make a huge difference in the atmosphere at our school.

“Even the smallest act of caring for another person is like a drop of water – it will make ripples throughout the entire pond,” (Jessy and Bryan Matteo).

I am thankful that those altruistic people succeed in slowly changing how others think until those people begin to follow the “we are one” ideals.

If we all started to follow the ideals those select few follow, I believe others would find more things to be thankful for as well. We, as a school, would be more united and less people would find reasons to be unhappy.
