The Four-Way Test
By Abby Marion
Can you pass the four-way test? I can. I try to tell the truth. My mom and my teacher say that’s good. I think everybody should tell the truth.
I try to be fair. Like in basketball—you should always share the ball with other teammates. That is good to do.
Being fair will give me goodwill and better friendships. I think having friends is a good thing to have. I try to think of all my friends. That makes it beneficial. I try to help my friends. That makes our friendship better. Now I just passed the four-way test.

You should always tell the truth, otherwise you could get in a lot of trouble. I always try to make better goodwill and make better friendships. You should always be fair. Is it beneficial to all be concerned? And you should have a kind heart and a true soul and never forget the end.

It is always better to tell the truth if you have done something bad. It’s not fair that you want to play but whoever won’t let you play with them. It’s not fair. Always help your elderly, it shows goodwill. Always be friendly, it will always make better friendships. It’s always good to be beneficial at home, school and friend’s houses.

Having good character means that you should be loyal, responsible, and honest to others. I think people who have good character have a very good life ahead of them.
I believe that character is a very big responsibility. To me I think the most important thing is being a team player, making someone believe that they can ask you for help. Being a team player is very important in life. You can’t be a good person if you aren’t loyal, responsible and caring for another person. If you aren’t caring no one will ever like to be with you because you are not caring about anything.
Honesty you need the most. If you don’t be honest then you are going to lie and cheat. This is a rule I believe in, treat others the way you want to be treated.
