To enhance relationships among people
it is important to demonstrate mutual respect and understanding for
one another. It is important to take pride in ourselves, and
at the same time to understand that each of us is a unique
all have different experiences, skills,
perspectives and feelings that allow us to react and interact in our
own manner. While we take pride in ourselves, we must have
respect for the values of others.
As children, we have been taught
right from wrong, either by our parents and teachers or by our
experiences. We read stories where "right" always
won -- the good guy wore the white hat and rode the white horse.
When confronted with a challenge, the story's character chose the
right decision and successfully overcame the conflict. We
learned that it was wrong to touch hot stove burners, to lie, to be
rude and impolite, and to disobey rules. We learned this
because they all had harsh consequences.
As adults, we can still rely on
these fundamental lessons of right and wrong. When faced with
choices, we generally know what is right and by choosing to Just
Do What's Right we will be making the decision for
what's right is not enough.
Doing what's right is putting knowledge into action.
