Explore the value of Responsibility
Stanley Martin Lieber
My belief is that personal freedom cannot grow beyond personal responsibility. The more people that learn to be fully accountable for their lives, the more freedom each of us can enjoy and the more fulfilling all of our lives will be.
A man sooner or later discovers that he is the master-gardener of his soul, the director of his life.
Words have special powers. The power to create smiles or frowns. The power to generate laughs or tears. The power to lift up or put down. The power to motivate or de-motivate. The power to teach good or evil. The power to express love or hate. The power to give or take. The power to heal or harm. Choose your words carefully.
Accept responsibility for your life. Know that it is you who will get you where you want to go, no one else.
We need to empower our people so they can take more responsibility for their own lives in a world that is ever smaller, where everyone counts...We need a new spirit of community, a sense that we are all in this together...
Robert "Bob" Jones
Call it a clan, call it a network, call it a tribe, call it a family. Whatever you call it, whoever you are, you need one.
George Bernard Shaw
To decide, to be at the level of choice, is to take responsibility for your life and to be in control of your life.

We need to leave behind: "I didn't know, I didn't understand, I didn't think" and take responsibility for our actions. It is time to take responsibility to know, to understand and to think for ourselves without blaming others or expecting others to do it for us.
My father had this saying:
You can pretend to care but you can't pretend to show up.
