This activity is a reflection about the relationship between your belief and the actions that come from that belief. For example, if your belief is that you are morally obligated to speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, you would look for places or institutions that embody this belief by putting it into actions. In this case, CASA would be an organization where adults represent children who are abused or neglected. NAMI is another organization, where adults help those with mental health issues.
To explore where you see your belief in action, answer the following questions, for your initial post.
1. What is the relationship between beliefs and actions?
2. How does putting action into the equation make your belief more concrete? In what way is it a social statement?
3. With your belief now situated in a social context, where do you see people acting (behaving) based on your belief? Try to name at least three ways or places.
