Action Week 1 – Word of the Month


Week 1

“The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing.”

Albert Einstein, world-renown physicist and inventor of the Theory of Relativity


Translation for Adults

One of your most important choices is whether to take action when others need your help. When you observe someone in trouble, don’t hesitate—act. You should never think you don’t have the time to act. Remember, failing to take action is just as wrong as the troubling situation you observe. It’s your job not only as a future Black Belt, but also as a human being to help people in need. You must be the one to step forward and take action.


Translation for Kids

Raise your hand if you have ever seen someone being bullied or bothered in a bad way by others. Always take action right away, even if you’re afraid of being bullied too. You should always take the time to help no matter where you are supposed to be. Taking action to help others shows that you care. Whatever the reason, failing to act is just as wrong as bullying someone. As future Black Belts and responsible adults, all of you must take action to help other people.
