Boys of Integrity

My husband often explains his work ethics by drawing a straight line across the whiteboard.  A few inches below he draws another line.  The first line, he explains, is the level of integrity you have for yourself.  Now, with the understanding that we all have bad days, dropping below that level of integrity can only go to a certain depth - (the second line).  But anything below that second line is "unacceptable" in his words. 

When teaching our children these values, I always like to pipe in and say, "At the end of the day, it's how you've behaved...not anyone else."  Also to remember there's grit in integrity.  The young man Ian, in the Play of the Day demonstrates this perfectly.  Thank you Ian for being a great role model to those around you.
