Integrity — Yours and Mine


How is it that we can do
a hundred good things and
no one pays attention, but
let us slip once and we
hear about it for the rest
of our lives?

I have had my trust broken
many times, sometimes in
small ways, other times in
important circumstances. I
place a high value on integrity,
mine and others. When I make
a promise and break it, I am
not keeping that integrity.
I say, I do. So simple a
concept, so why do we fail
to do it at times?

Unity can not exist without
trust, and trust is built
with integrity. It is pivotal
to mankind living in harmony
with all. Let us be diligent
about guarding our word. If
we make a commitment, let
us keep it. If for some reason
we can not, we must let the other
know so we do not break their
trust. So simple, but it takes moral
strength to remain firm with this.
