    Integrity and personal character should be incorporated into the primary/secondary classrooms today for such is not being taught at home unfortunately. Back in the ’80s I enrolled at the university level in an ethics course and my advisor tried gearing me towards a different course altogether, saying being didn’t need such teachings any longer -> I totally disregarded this advisor when it came to enjoying this class and learned much from it.

    Very well written article. It is sad and frightening at same time existing in todays society, watching, participating…then the awakening… That not only is there such a lack of character & integrity in todays world, much more than we realize such qualities are NOT being taught early in our homes and our schools. By the time this youth reaches young adulthood they don’t even know what these things are let alone attempting to build on them! It’s sad but so true…there should be more sites like these up in our homes & schools instead of the day to day garbage our kids are viewing now. Scary thinking about the future.

    I really enjoyed this insightful and well-written article. I find it sad that character is completely overshadowed by artifice in today’s society. Building character requires tireless self-awareness and much inner strength, among other qualities. I feel the latter has far greater, and enduring, currency in the world because, when the chips are down, we’ll need people with formidable character to guide us through.
