Maintaining Integrity

I respect people who don’t say one thing and act another way. If you believe in fair play, and say as much aloud, then it only makes sense to me that you should be playing fair. In practice, the world is full of lies and the lying liars who tell them (not my phrase). Every day, we make the choice of how hard to defend our principles. Some will gladly make sacrifices of their fellow man, hurting and stealing from others in small and large ways, to “get ahead” in life. I try as hard as I can without surrender to be a better person than that.
