    Standing Up

    Conner E., age 10, Arizona

    When a group of friends and I were out at recess playing basketball, a boy started making fun of one of my friends who was playing with us. I stood up to the boy and told him he wasn’t being very nice, and that he needed to be nice to my friend. I felt good inside because I knew that standing up for my friend was what a good friend would do, and what Jesus would do.
