Unpopular Choices for the Right Reasons

Bravery comes in many forms, but “people who made unpopular choices for the right reasons” is apparently not a common Google search term.

So says my daughter, who – for a family project about dealing with peer pressure – put together a research paper on people who have made such decisions.

Her choices are both historic and very modern.

AND she built it in PowerPoint, which is all the more awesome.

Here it is – with a blog title optimized for the next kid who’s asked to write such a paper.

  1. Your daughter did indeed do a nice job with this. I like the fact that she has a mix of not so famous as well as famous, as well as a mix of modern day and historical figures. Helps drive the point home that taking an unpopular stand was important back then as well as right now. I have not heard of a few of these, and will have to poke around the internet a bit.

  2. Harriet Tubman is a lifelong inspiration and heroine of mine. I am grateful for this project which reaches across the values and interests of the numerous generations alive today. Because of your work to recognize and document persons’ “choices for the right reasons,” I have even more heroic inspirations! Thank you ! JPope
