A higher standard of behavior needed

Be the change you wish to see in the world

Why is it that every time we open the paper we read about another “not for profit” leader involved in unethical or illegal behavior?

Individuals who grow up in homes lacking proper supervision or worse, in homes where parents themselves behave badly in front of the children, behave accordingly.

Similarly, citizens living in communities without positive role models in their local governments will also tend to mimic the graft, corruption and sleaze they see.

We should hold our elected leaders to a higher standard of ethical behavior.

They should hold themselves to a higher standard.
