Last weekend I attended the
National Forum on Character Education in Washington DC. I heard speaker after speaker talk about the importance
of developing the emotional strength, character and moral fiber of the
student as a foundation for the technical disciplines of education.
This is an arena I have worked in for many years. For 7 years worked on numerous
human rights and
religious freedom issues in more than 17 countries. I have worked with
The Way to Happiness Foundation International for the last 13 years promoting universal character and ethics in over
100 languages and countries.
I admit, after listening to months of the deceptive-toxic-onslaught of
personal attacks by the two major US presidential candidates, fed by hypocritical-vested-interest
media networks, I had become a bit jaded about the future of our world.
But after this weekend, seeing so
wonderful caring people
doing such good work, one child, one student at a time, my faith in mankind
has been renewed.
A concept that was repeatedly mentioned was the importance of empowering
the emotional strength of the student, of having good role models in the
adults students work with and developing a good set of values for them
to live their lives by.
These are words apply to nearly everything in life.
In speaking to a group, I feel we should respect and strengthen the individual
audience member's belief in their ability to do and to act.
In building and leading a company, the emotional strength and stability
of each employee will determine the company's success. Words and actions
should be used to strengthen moral base that binds the company personnel.
In being an employee, being a stable positive role model for others will
only enhance the workplace for all and maybe even help some struggling
Never under estimate
your ability to make a difference.
We build a better world by caring about others, no matter who we are or
what position we have.
We build a better world by setting a good example by our own actions.
We build a better world by helping to create one smile at a time.
