There are many ways to exercise one’s citizenship, from voting and serving on juries to participating in local civic activities. As youth grow into citizens, there is a growing demand for civic literacy. The Rose Bowl Institute will address this need by encouraging athletes to speak to school audiences about the importance of sportsmanship, and its parallels to good citizenship. Appreciation of the game, air play, respect for the opponent, and teamwork all have democratic analogies. Just as every player has responsibility to the team, each citizen has responsibilities to the greater community, as well as individual liberty.
A life is not important except the impact it has on other lives.
