"...Who cannot be bought;
... Whose word is their bond;
...Who put character above wealth;
...Who are larger than their vocations;
... Who do not hesitate to take chances;
... Who will not lose their identity in a crowd;
...Who will be as honest in small things as in great things;
...Whose ambitions are not confined to their own selfish desires;
...Who will not say or do it because everybody else does it;
...Who are true to their friends through good report and evil report, in adversity as well as in prosperity;
...Who do not believe that shrewdness and cunning are the best qualities for winning success;
...Who are not ashamed to stand for the truth when it is unpopular;
...Who can say NO with emphasis, although the rest of the world say YES.
GOD, make me this kind of man."
-Leonard Wagner

We don't seem to aspire to be this type of men in our society anymore.....but we need to.

  1. I'd like to think that I live these values. It is an excellent point regardless. I fear for the youth of the world and strive to be a good example for my kids (all daughters) so that they can recognize a person worth knowing.
