    • What does WWJD stand for? • Christian “MOTTO” • Reminder to stop & think before acting • Ask yourself what Jesus would react like
    • WWJD by Will Weaver From the book: On The Fringe the Columbine High After School shootings, Don Gallo had a goal of getting several authors together to address an issue such as school violence through the lens of fiction.
    • Characters: • Suzanne – the transfer student • Eddie Halvorsen – Suzanne‟s tormentor • Suzanne’s Aunt • Parking Lot Attendant • Mr. Klephorn - school counselor • Psychiatrist • Ms. Jones – the school nurse • Ms. Kaufman – the assistance principle • Mr. Patterson – the woodworking teacher
    • What is the story about?
    • What does WWJD mean to you? OVER- RATED?
    • References: "WWJD." On The Fringe: Short Stories about Conflict and Alienation. Ed by Don Gallo (Dial Press 2001)
    • RELIGIOU • Does S: it matter what religion you are?? o Does it mean “What would ______ do?” • Gandhi • Buddha • Allah o How can we even try to be like God?
    • STUPID: • Money maker (selling products) • Cliché • Impossible
    • CRUTCH: • The bracelet is a stimulus to live like Jesus? o Shouldn‟t we know how to live without a stimulus… • A „branding‟ - Conformity • Group membership – exclusivity…
    • WISE : to have reminders of their • Good for kids beliefs • Good for others to know what we believe • Good to help remind us to think before we do…
    • OVER- RATED: • Parents are just making their kids wear the bracelets • Kids will be kids • Jesus reminders will not help angry, mean kids • Nobody is perfect – NO ONE can “BE” like JESUS!
    • COP-OUT: • Should live our religion – not because of a phrase? • If we forget the bracelet at home, do we get to be bad? • Is it a Christian way to discriminate/separation? • We should ALL stop and think before we act – not just because of our religion.
