Today we talked about alertness in character building unit. Do you have a time when you where alert and it really helped? I will give you an example of alertness from my life. When I was 10 I was at Lake Michigan. I saw a kid jump off of the pier and he began to struggle. I decided to jump in a save him from drowning. Luckily me dad was alert too because he had to jump in and save us both because the tide was too strong. Have you ever helped anyone by being alert?
