Acts of moral courage are not common, they are exceptional. People actively create opportunities to rescue or choose to help others. It can happen in a blink of an eye or after long deliberation, but these moments are not accidental.
At Facing History and Ourselves, we value conversation—in classrooms, in our professional development for educators, and online.
