It's not easy to do 'the right thing'

  • You are very right Chris.. our society DOES seem to regularly choose not to do "the right thing"... whether it be fibbing on tax returns, a parent signing a homework folder knowing the child didn't do the assignment, speeding up at a yellow light, lying on a sports form to get a young child in a "better" sports program or not returning the extra $5 received from a "cash back" transaction at Wal Mart. The list goes on and on.

    We humans often complicate things in order to be self serving.

    Doing the right thing is often tedious, self-effacing and unfortunately it is rare.

    Thanks for pointing out a case where a person stepped out of a "comfort zone" and made the righ decision.
