Sometimes it’s okay to ignore the rules or break the law. This book profiles people who stood up for what they believed in, even at great personal risk, including Sophie and Hans Scholl, siblings who distributed antigovernment pamphlets in Nazi Germany; Oscar Romero, archbishop of El Salvador, who used his power to change the status quo; Helen Suzman, a South African member of parliament who fought apartheid; plus Andrei Sakharov, Rosa Parks and Aung San Suu Kyi, and the people of Egypt, who recently brought down the repressive government of Hosni Mubarak. These inspirational profiles of people who followed their moral compass make for riveting stories as well as excellent starting points for discussions about ethics and morality.
