You can turn on the news almost every day and see the stories of the lack of integrity in American culture. Integrity is rapidly becoming a forgotten virtue.
We see leaders living a double life; corrupt politicians who say one thing and do another; cheating athletes who will do anything to win; even religious leaders who turn their back on the ethics and values that they preach and teach.
And it’s not just high-profile people who are guilty. It could be your closest friend, someone whom you thought you knew. You loved them, believed in them and trusted them, only to find out that there were secrets, that, when revealed, exposed an incredible lack of integrity. Those personal stories won’t make the headlines, but the hurt and disappointment they cause are just as real.
