Honor Has Not To Be Won

  1. Honorable conduct is built brick by brick. Dishonorable conduct pulls bricks off the bottom in job lots. I watched a man I admired lose his job and reputation over a single issue. Quite painful to watch.

    1. It's happening everywhere now STxAR. And the people pulling the roof down on us are just getting started. I must have a different idea of honour because I am not seeing it from many people anymore. To me, something is obviously and seriously broken and until we establish a shared sense of honour - it will continue to be a clown's world.

    2. STxAR, you are right - when it comes off, it comes off quickly and may never be rebuilt. But Glen brings up an excellent point as well: in our modern culture, there really is not sense of honour (or dishonour) left. Things that 30 years ago would have crushed a career and life are nothing more than Social Media worthy.

      Until such a thing is re-established - yes, a clown world indeed.

  2. I think STxAR is right that it does need to be won. But it also must not be lost.
    Boggles my mind how many in Congress in particular, have no honor at all but are still there.

    1. Linda, I fear for many people some day they will wake up and realize just how much they have lost, and how unrecoverable it may be.
