PAGE 2 FRSA FLASH THOUGHTS TO CONSIDER !!! Values are the guiding principles that help us achieve our life purposes. They are the foun-dation of our character and our confidence. Values are reflected in the way we behave and inhow we see the world. These values will cause us to press toward our goals and visions. De-fining our values helps to keep us on course so that we reach our destiny. What we do re-flects what we believe.William Lloyd Garrison lived in America during the nineteenth century. Slavery was an ac-cepted way of life at that time. Garrison held to a different set of values. He felt slavery was ahideous crime against God and people. Throngs of people mocked him for his beliefs. Garri-son did not allow the opinions of people to hinder him in his opposition to slavery. Hepreached his message until slavery was brought to a place of death in his country.What are your values? Have you defined the values that you are willing to live for. Are youwilling to stand against all opposition and fight for those values? Be bold in your convic-tions. After all, you must be able to live with yourself!
