Seven Ideas for Life…

Found this interesting article on Boundless.org . Dennis Prager is a Jewish American and a talk show host.. Enjoy his thoughts from the commencement address he gave to the 1997 graduating class of Pepperdine University.

One: The Greatest Struggle Is with Yourself – not with society..
Two: Trust Your Common Sense
Three: Race is Unimportant
Four: Don’t Leave Your Values at Home
Five: Beware of Bad Ideas
Six: Behavior Matters More than Intentions
Seven: Religion is the True Counterculture

Particularly loved this part…When you can say, “No, I’m sorry; as tempting as that is [whatever that may be], I cannot do it,” others respect you, and you will respect you. When you know to whom you are accountable and you ultimately march to the beat of a higher drummer, you lead a more peaceful life.
