History ACTIVE Day 4: We Have the Power

Today in History ACTIVE, the focus was on women's issues. To start, we discussed the documentary, "Pray the Devil Back to Hell," which shows how women in Liberia organized together to end a seventeen-year civil war. We learned that anyone has the power to make a difference as long as he or she has the initiative. While it may be hard to do it alone, it's always possible as long as you put your mind to it. Whether man or woman, we all should have equal power and influence. We all just have to stay focused!

We also learned the importance of trust and self-awareness when advocating for change in either a group or on your own. Trusting helps build strong relationships in everyday life. It's important to trust yourself, too. When you trust in yourself, you inspire others to trust in themselves. You need to have confidence in your views and have courage to voice them.

Tomorrow is Advocacy Day so we will have a chance to put our skills to use. More to come tomorrow.
