Oscar Romero

Date: 2nd Apr 2019 @ 7:09pm

In class we have talked about sacrifice. We looked at the life of Oscar Romero and his sacrifice. He spoke out against injustice and was killed for doing so.

Watch the video clip about his life.

He once said:

"Aspire not to have more, but to be more"

What do you think this means?

Why do you think he carried on speaking out against the government when he knew he would go back to jail?
