We must always honor our words. Why?
We must always honor our words because they are a promise. They represent who we are and gives a measure of our trustworthiness.
Write an account of an act of tolerance you have shown/seen
An account of tolerance that I have seen was when I was on my way to school on a summer morning. The day was quite hot, and everyone was frustrated and irritable. Our car stopped at a signal. Suddenly, I heard a loud crashing noise.
Alarmed, I turned to look out the window and discovered that the car beside ours had been crashed into by another one. The rear bumper of the first car was quite damaged. The owner of the car was somewhat upset at first – an older man, likely on his way to work — but he forgave the driver of the other car. It was a young man who apologized profusely for his mistake. The older man patted the other man on his shoulder and just told him to be careful in the future. It was an astonishing act of forgiveness and tolerance that I probably will never forget.
