  1. Comment from Carrie Adams:

    “Cowardice asks the question – is it safe?
    Expediency asks the question – is it politic?
    Vanity asks the question – is it popular?
    But conscience asks the question – is it right?
    And there comes a time when one must take a position
    that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular;
    but one must take it because it is right.”

    Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

  2. Comment from John B. Tang:

    Thank you for the beautiful quote from Dr. King, Carrie. Yes, What is right might not be popular nor safe but people in positions of leadership must be doing what is right. I hope that is what some of our PPS leaders believe and attempt to do. The future of 47,000 + youth is in their hands. Each of us has to be our own conscience to watch out for the interest of others.
