Preparation for Activity

  • Photocopy Story 2, "I'm Sorry," one for each participant.

Description of Activity

Youth hear and discuss a story that illustrates how actions speak louder than words.

Tell or read Story 2, "I'm Sorry." Alternately, you might ask for one or more volunteers to read it

Ask for reactions to the story. What do the youth think the moral is? ("Actions speak louder than words" is one possibility.)

Can the youth tell of events in their own lives when somebody stepped up and did something good while others were just talking?
