Value the Values

Finders keepers? There are countless stories of someone finding a large sum of money, then seeking out the owner to return what he or she had found. In most cases the finder could have easily kept the money and enjoyed its benefits but their value of the values, fairness and honesty, exceeded their value of the money itself.

Life’s choices and decisions are not always clear and often our human wants and needs test our ability to act in a pro-social manner, with consideration for others. Our prisons are overflowing with those that failed the test. Today’s political discourse demonstrates a diminishing value in the values of respect and cooperation at every turn. The sum of our anti-social actions, from murder to Madoff, is telling our youth they grow up in a world that in fact, does not value the values, that the prior generation does not “walk the talk.”

What can we do?  Know that your actions at work, at home and in the community demonstrate to our young your value of social values.  Walk the talk. Be fair and honest. Respect others and accept responsibility for your obligations and mistakes. Seek out youth and teach values now to make a better world.
