An Explanation - Socially Responsible People

My explanation of what it takes to be a socially responsible person in our community.

It takes a lot more than one thing to become a socially responsible person. One needs to have the confidence, leadership, kindness, friendliness, and the support of others to be the most socially responsible person EVER!

To be a socially responsible person, it is important to work with others. Everyone is a member of the big family - the community. Fai tatou mea fa’atasi. O tatou o le fanau o le Atua. In our community, we’re a family and always a family. In our community, we don’t only say hi and give each other kisses on the cheek. We also help each other, support each other and love one another. All of this sort of stuff is what is needed to be a socially responsible person. We need to start putting it together. No more fights, swearing, bullying. For goodness sake, we’re children of God! We were sent here to follow Him, do the right things and be socially responsible.

If you want to be a socially responsible person, you need to have the respect, honesty, self direction, responsibility and most importantly, self management skills. Disagreements or fights are not answers to problems we face. Socially responsible persons treat others the way they want to be treated.

Just manage yourself. Do the right thing. Be a role model, be a socially responsible person. Influence others to do the same.
