Being a good citizen

Martin Luther King Jr. said, “Life’s most persistent and most urgent question is ‘What are you doing for others?’” The SeaWorld & Busch Gardens Conservation Fund works to help make the world a better place. What are other organizations or people in your community doing to help others? Look through the St. Petersburg Times to find articles about people working to make their communities better places to live. Look for an article about a person, corporation, business or organization that has made a difference. Read the article. Think about what impact this individual or group has made in the community. Discuss, in a fully developed paragraph, how this has affected your community. In another paragraph, explain what qualities make the person or organization commendable. Share your information with your class and here on the NIE Blogging Zone.
