Set aside time for journaling, reflection, prayer, and/or meditation, using these focus questions:
- What people—famous or not—do you think have lived a virtuous life? What actions and qualities can you point to that make their lives virtuous?
- What virtues are most important to you?
- What guides you when you decide your action is virtuous?
- Are there times when acting virtuously causes personal risk? Do you have experience with such risk-taking, perhaps in a social justice stance? How do you view this kind of sacrifice? Is it worth it? Does being virtuous require risk-taking? Are there times when we must risk all for change and justice?
