Writing today’s post brought back fond memories of two favorite family pets: a dog named Justice and his mom, Liberty. We called our fun and funny Airedale Terriers Justy and Libby. This post, however, is not about Justice, the dog; it’s about the virtue of justice, and it’s part of our series celebrating Character Day.
Character Day is a global online event, featuring experts in the field of character education. The intention of Character Day is to engage schools, corporations, universities, civic groups and others in deep conversation about the importance of character development. Anyone can sign up to participate (sign up here), and all participants receive access to award-winning films, conversation starter kits, a comprehensive online resource hub, and a mobile app, including over 5,000 pieces of curated content focused on the importance of character development. This content is meant to support you in creating and hosting your own Character Day event, and all of these resources are offered here, for free!
Character Day is getting big. Last year, there were 93,000 unique events held in 125 countries, including all 50 states in the U.S. What ties these events together? Each event is focused on a single, simple theme: developing character strengths.
