My View #110 - What is Integrity?

The dictionary says "of sound moral principles, honest and sincere." Now that covers a lot of ground and makes a person think about life in general. I told my friend Carol what my next "View" would be about, and last evening I saw the whole story about Enron; it was spell-binding. What a story of lying, cheating, stealing and utter total corruption in one company, hoping to rule the world. No integrity, they ruined hundreds of people's hopes and lives, and then they themselves went bankrupt.

Well it is said, "What you sow, you reap," that is so true. You cannot do wrong to another person, feel happy, and get away with it. Any adult will find conscience pricks deep within and if that doesn't halt a person, the law, friends or family will. The price paid is very high, as we see in the papers. So everybody alive needs to live with integrity.

All my love,
Letty

I am grateful and proud that both my parents lived with integrity, a quality I hope I can say they passed on to me.
