Show of Hands: Young Authors Reflect on the Golden Rule
Pgw, Apr 1, 2009 - Education - 338 pages
From 826 Valencia, the innovative teaching center located in San Francisco, comes an anthology of stories and essays by 54 juniors and seniors at San Francisco’s Mission High School. We’ve all heard the adage, “do unto others as you would have them do unto you,” but there are many facets to this “Golden Rule.” Forming the fundamental moral basis of many religions, and applicable to global issues, street violence, and interpersonal relationships among friends and family, this principle is a guiding beacon for moral behavior and a fascinating starting point for these impassioned essays and short stories. These young voices explore the Golden Rule in thoughtful ways, bringing their unique and varied perspectives to an age-old notion of social interaction.
