Good citizens know what their personal rights and responsibilities are. Rights are freedoms we have that are protected by our laws or rules. Responsibilities are duties or things that we should do. In order to be good citizens, or members of a community, we must follow the rules/laws and do our part. When we serve and contribute to the world around us, we can make a difference for others. Even small acts can help others to be healthy, happy, and well.
