Mr Browne's first precept:
We discussed this precept as a class. These are some of the ideas we had about what it might mean:
We also talked about how hard it would be to back down from an argument when you knew you were right just to save the other persons feelings.
We decided being kind is not as simple as it sounds and that there are times when it is ok to be right.
We came up with the idea that the most important word in this precept is CHOICE. We have a choice in every decision we make, every decision needs to be evaluated but sometimes it is better to choose to be kind rather than right. We always have a choice.
