  • A person should ensure his word is always trustworthy

    Have you ever been spoken to inappropriately?  Mistreated? Lied to? We all have. 

    We want to trust people we encounter every day in their words and actions, but sadly society has changed drastically for the worse. 

    Politics, friendships, business deals along with so many other things… it’s a dog eat dog world.  My way or the highway no matter how it may harm others is the attitude of so many.
