What Is Your Definition of a Good Citizen? 1. Stand up to racism. So many times I have held my tongue either through fear or political correctness. NO MORE! 2. Offer help when it would be easier to walk away thinking it's not my problem, my child, my loved one, my neighbor. 3. Practice every day not fearing the 'other', but embracing it. 4. Learn about other cultures and religions so as not to unintentionally insult or embarrass people.
