There are only three letters left in our monthly spelling of the word “Character.” This month, “T” stands for “Tolerance” which is the noun form of the verb, tolerate. It is defined in the dictionary as accepting differing views and uniqueness of others. You can show tolerance by not judging someone before getting to know them. Everyone has opinions about things and they are allowed to express them even if you do not agree with them. This is what it means to live free in America.
