8th Grade: We researched saints who are role models for us. By the right of our creation that gives us the right to life, liberty, and the right to pursue happiness according to the founders of our nation, we must ask ourselves what kind of role models are we to others in our lives? Are you being the best you can be in all aspects of your life? If not, why? What can you do differently? That's what the saints asked themselves and that's what we must ask ourselves!
