Be A Good Human Tag

I can't recall the date, but it was pretty early in the morning when I read a tweet from Jen Campbell, as usual, something nasty was said to her, and I say as usual because this is something that she has to live on daily basis for a condition she has with her hand.

That day she created the Be A Good Human Tag, and set certain rules: 

Be NICE to each other and don't be a prick about it

At the time, I considered doing the tag, but life happened and I just set the idea aside. Recently I found my old notebook with a list of videos to do, and there it was, it was one of the first videos to do one day.

Books have always been a haeven to me, words are powerful

Las week Jen shared a video in which she said how she was feeling with all the things that are going on in the world, and mentioned that it was a good time to revive the tag, and I couldn't agree more. Books have always been a haeven to me, words are powerful and books are full of meaning and valuable lessons. So here are the books that helped me to be a good human in some level and I wanted to share them with you because maybe they could help you too.

Like Water for Chocolate: showed me to be more assertive, to undertood that kids are not their parents property, that we have rights and that nobody can force you to sacrifice your happines for their own purpose.

Little Women: for the family values, the reminder that you have so many blessings and sometimes take them for granted.

The Secret Garden and A Christmas Carol: because kindness is always the right choice

The Book Thief and All the Light We Cannot See: for reminded me that sometimes what your goverment, superiors or grown ups teach you is wrong, you can tell what is good and what is bad, and do the right thing.

The Help: the way one single person can affect others and make this place a better place, have courage, speak for what is right.

Eleanor & Park and The Winter Witch: to not judge others for how they look or because they are different, you don't know the background story, think before make fun of someone, think before judge someone just because is different from you, most of the time what shines is not always gold.

The Last Apprentice Saga: to work with others for a greater good, even when sometimes to do that you need to let go of old ideas and embrace new ones.

Burial Rites, The Time in Between and Harry Potter: friendship and kindness are the most important same as love. You can help others in a small level and change their life forever. 

The Mists of Avalon: respect others religions and ideologies, yours it's not always the best, there's not good or better Gods, just believes, tolerance and respect.

The Giver saga: for showing different kind of realities, two of them that don't accept the different, those with weaknesses or deformities, one which accept them and thanks to an evil man are being corrupted and are thinking on closing their borders to those who need them the most.
