Assets in Action: Be a good role model

-A A +A
By Bernadette Lauritzen

This week, I’d like to continue along the Community Values Youth path, with a spin on Community Values Itself.
Thank goodness it is Election Day, because it will finally be over tonight.
Perhaps the Mayans were wrong and they didn’t mean the world would end, but by the time this election came to pass, we might wish it had ended.
The most important thing is that if you are eligible to vote, that you cast your ballot. I believe if you don’t vote, you forfeit the right to complain.
As a nation, we have been horrible role models to our children during this entire process.
So take a minute to see it through the eyes of the children.
As a speech communications major, I love to listen to the debates and try not to argue with the television … I said, I try.
No matter what the outcome, tomorrow we need to do a good job to model acting like grown-ups.
Try and be old school tomorrow and reflect back on the days when you honored the position, no matter who sat behind the desk.
Jenna Bush Hager did a wonderful piece on the “Today Show” this morning, about youth elections.
We can learn a lot from the children.
