Em Janeiro, as turmas de 7º ano costumam assinalar o feriado nacional americano que honra a vida e o impacto da vida do Dr. Martin Luther King. Recolhemos algumas citações deste norte americano, que divulgámos no Crem, no hall de entrada, em vários pontos da escola.
As suas frases fazem-nos pensar e querer mudar para melhor e, por isso, aqui vos deixamos algumas citações:
" Whatever your life's work is, do it well."
"If I cannot do great things, I can do small things in a great way."
"Let no man pull you so low as to hate him."
"I have to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear."
"Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into a friend."
"Forgiveness isn't an occasional act. It is a permanent attitude."
" The time is always right to do what is right."
"Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter."
" in the end we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends."
"There comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor popular, but he must take it because conscience tells him it is right."
"Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere."
"There comes a time when silence is betrayal."
" Do not pray for an easy life, pray for the strength to endure a difficult one."
Sobre a EDUCAÇÃO, o Dr. Martin Luther King defende que:
“The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education.”
" Education must enable one to sift and weigh evidence, to discern the true from the false, the real from the unreal, and the facts from the fiction."
" Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all."
"Education without morals is like a ship without a compass, merely wandering nowhere."
