The Right Way

Integrity is how you stand up for what is right.
Even if other people put you down, you get back up for the fight.
Integrity is being honest and doing things the right way.
Even if no one has anything to say.
Integrity is not trying to get a reward,
or trying to get a rank on your shoulder board.
It is about helping others in a time of great need.
That is the way of integrity.

- Cadet Thompson


To be a Person of Integrity

You are a product of the people you surround yourself with.
Bad friends and good ones, they are all around us
Think for a second, and reflect on your social group
Are you empowered by them
Do they push you for greater things
Or are you brought down
Lower than your capabilities
Are you pressured, or are you free
Do you have the integrity to know who is right for you
Do you agree
