"Integrity is worth nothing."
His words shook me to the core, and I am shaking my head in disagreement before the idea has even left his mouth.
Integrity is not dead; it is not worthless; it is alive and thriving in my house if not in the world at large.
However, when I look at my world, I see a political environment that lacks integrity, a business world that lacks integrity, and i am no longer in a relationship with a man who lacks integrity.
I thought I grew up in a world where a person's word was their honor, and people accepted responsibility for their actions and their choices. We held ourselves accountable even if no one else did.
The idea was always to be true to yourself.
That is how I raise my child.
But I see the lack of integrity
I feel its absence
And I wonder what happened to integrity? What happened to us in that we seem to prefer a life without it?
