In the African nation of Sudan, a tra- ditional wedding includes a ceremony known as "sungkem," in which the bride and groom kiss the knees of their parents. "Casablanca," starring Humphrey Bo- gart and Ingrid Bergman, is one of the most beloved movies of all time, fre- quently being listed at or near the top of lists of the best fi lms ever made. How- ever, shortly after its release in Novem- ber 1942, The New Yorker rated it only "pretty tolerable." Connoisseurs of frog legs claim that you should leave the toes on when frying -- they're good for picking your teeth after eating. At any given time, about two-thirds of the earth's surface is covered by clouds. (c) 2011 King Features Synd., Inc. The Josephson Institute of Ethics is the nation's most popular and effec- tive character education program. A very important resource for teachers, coaches, parents, and youth group leaders, the Josephson Institute is a nonprofi t organization dedicated to improving the ethical quality of soci- ety by advocating principled reasoning and ethical decision making. The CHARACTER COUNTS! approach to character education doesn't exclude anyone. That's why they base the pro- grams and materials on six ethical val- ues that everyone can agree on — val- ues that are not political, religious, or culturally biased. The National Honor Society and Quartzsite's own charter school, the Scholars' Academy, are active partici- pants in Character Counts. The Six Pil- lars are listed below. Some adults may need a reminder, too. Details: THE SIX PILLARS Trustworthiness Be honest • Don't deceive, cheat, or steal • Be reliable — do what you say you'll do • Have the courage to do the right thing • Build a good reputa- tion • Be loyal — stand by your family, friends, and country Respect Treat others with respect; follow the Golden Rule • Be tolerant and accept- ing of differences • Use good manners, not bad language • Be considerate of the feelings of others • Don't threaten, hit or hurt anyone • Deal peacefully with anger, insults, and disagreements Responsibility Do what you are supposed to do • Plan ahead • Persevere: keep on trying! • Al- ways do your best • Use self-control • Be self-disciplined • Think before you act — consider the consequences • Be ac- countable for your words, actions, and attitudes • Set a good example for others Fairness Play by the rules • Take turns and share • Be open-minded; listen to oth- ers • Don't take advantage of others • Don't blame others carelessly • Treat all people fairly Caring Be kind • Be compassionate and show you care • Express gratitude • Forgive others • Help people in need Citizenship Do your share to make your school and community better • Cooperate • Get involved in community affairs • Stay informed; vote • Be a good neighbor • Obey laws and rules • Respect authority • Protect the environment • Volunteer.
