The more than 100 people who attended Monday night's CharacterPlus rally went home from the Miller Performing Arts Center with an assignment: Tell the three living people you most appreciate, "tonight or tomorrow morning," that you do appreciate them - and why.

Hal Urban, a former teacher and character education expert, delivered the assignment at the end of a 72-minute presentation on the power of words.
