“To be right is not always popular…To be popular is not always right.”

I believe that the  quote  “To be right is not always popular…To be popular is not always right.” is completely true.  This has a lot to do with what we have been learning in class lately, especially the movie Sticks and Stones.  A lot of times, people have a hard time deciding what to do because of their social status.  Being “popular” is more important that doing the right thing to some people.  So, many times in life, doing the right thing may not make you the most popular kid in school, but at least you know you are a good person.  I would much rather be a kind, caring individual than be popular but for some people, that isn’t the case.  For some, it is very hard to let go of their social status as the “popular kid” and that’s not always a bad thing.  As teens, we don’t realize that being popular isn’t the most important thing in our lives.  But, ten years from now, it won’t matter whether or not we were popular in high school, it will matter if we are good people or not.
