Integrity Matters

No Cheating!

Integrity is not a conditional word. It doesn't blow in the wind or change with the weather. It is your inner image of yourself, and if you look in there and see a man who won't cheat, then you know he never will. 
~ John D. MacDonald

It can be so easy to "fudge a little," to tell yourself, "No one is looking" or "Everyone else is doing it." But that's not true. You are looking at your own behavior and not everyone else is cheating. We human beings can rationalize almost any bad behavior. That's important to remember when making choices. But we also have a great capacity for living with unshakable integrity and teaching our children to do the same. That's one of the greatest lessons we will ever teach.
