Transcript and video: http://aplus.com/a/joshuas-pledge-jenabu-williams

“Today is going to be a good day. I thank God for waking me up today.

I am going to school so I can learn, go to college, and be the leader that God has created me to be.

Today I will be educated by my teachers, empowered by my teachers with the tools to be successful within my community and throughout the country.

I apply myself daily.

I study and I ask questions when I don’t understand.

When I am confronted with a problem or a conflict, I think before I react.

I ignore all negative influences in the classroom and throughout my school day.

I am extremely proud to be the next generation of Christian leaders.

I accept responsibility and I love the challenge.”

My Pledge

I’ve modified it to create my own pledge.

“Today is going to be a good day. I thank God for waking me up today.

I am going to school and church to learn, be empowered, and be the leader that God has created me to be.

Today I will love, learn, engage, and empower to improve my community, my country, and my world.

I apply myself daily.

I study and I ask questions when I don’t understand.

When I am confronted with a problem or a conflict, I think before I react.

I ignore all negative influences throughout my work day.

I am extremely proud to be a family member, help the next generation of college graduates learn, and be a positive influence for the next generation of Christians and the next generation of teachers.

I accept responsibility and I love the challenge.”
