Message summary:

We all learn from a early age. We are told we need to listen to others and learn from them. Which voice is the correct voice? How does listening to positive and negative voices affect our lives? We sometimes learn to be positive or negative by the voices we listen to. Some tell us that bullying others makes us better than others and some tell us to not bully but to reason with others is better. So which one is the right voice? To make positive choices in life, we need to listen and learn from all voices and be the voice we want others to listen to be better people. Being a bully is self-serving and not a positive choice but helping others in their daily lives is a more positive choice.

Peer pressure can lead us to make poor choices like drinking or doing drugs which can make us feel better and forget life struggles. The lack of self-esteem can lead us to be more receptive to doing those things. We think that others will like us when we do those things. We need to stay away from doing things to our body that will hurt our thought process and ability to make positive choices in life. Knowing and doing the right things enables us to reassure others that they are needed and rebuild their confidence to start making positive choices.

Teen drivers and their peer passengers is the leading cause of teen deaths in America, exceeding even homicide and suicide. Even small decisions like texting or big ones like drinking expand in seconds to results that impact many lives forever. Thinking beyond ourselves, beyond this moment, helps us realize that today’s decisions and actions have far-reaching impact.

The overall message of “One Voice” is to help us realize that we need to decide which voice to we listen to and how do others hear our voice. To make positive choices in life is not always easy. We need to realize that we are each leaders and others follow our example whether we realize it or not. The better we understand this, the more we make a difference in those around us to contemplate their values and the actions that result from them.
