With our senses assaulted by stories of terrorism, political machinations, international power politics, shake ups in the center of our government, and racial confrontations, there is critical importance for an individual to stand true to their Character and Values.
I truly believe the world is desperate for a rekindling of Faith, Values, Giving Back, and Community. We are all “Brothers,” and if we do not embrace a bigger sense of “Being,” we destroy our entire world society. Take a moment to reflect on what sustains your character and values. Do you embrace these attributes as you engage with and lead others?
