Quotes from a news article:  Ron Rollins Ideas and Voices Editor

Jerry O'Ryan states:  "Ethics is much like the definition of character, "It's what you do and how you act when no one is looking."

Unfortunately ethics no longer relate well to how we act whether others are watching or not.  Ethics in business and politics are buried into how much money is donated to the cause, influence, political ambitions, kickbacks, publicity, prestige, deception and profit.

Mary Collier states:   Greed, ignorance, abuse of power and maintaining status quo seem to be enemies of ethics and difficult to fight."

The only way to make a positive difference in the world of business associates, family, friends, church members, neighbors, and to ourselves is to rediscover the value of honesty and ethics in our own lives.  We are not responsible for the actions of others.  Blaming others does not let us off the hook. We are responsible for our own actions and reactions.  We can live our lives ethically and become a living example of character and demonstrate ethics for others.  It has to begin somewhere and it starts now with us.    It is a challenge that frees us from uncertainty and guilt and enables trust!
