    My Code.

    I have for as long as I have been an adult striven to live by a largely unspoken code. First and foremost is to always speak the truth. To do what we feel is right. To respect everyone. To always be fair. To be reliable. To work with others. To bring positive influences to...

    Too Bad Others Do Not

    From the time I was a child I was taught about honor. Let me change that ...Honor. To keep my word. To champion those with less than I, or weaker than I. To buoy the spirit and hope of others. To be dependable. I was carefully taught, that fear is not just a mind...

    My Code Has Eveolved With Wisdom Of Years

    I haven't always felt this way, but the older I get, the more I feel there are certain traits that define a good man. I say man but could easily be for a woman too for the most part, it is just that I use these to define the man I strive to be. My code of Honor consists of...

    When you honor people,

    when you go out of your way to make them feel special, all that honor you’re pouring in will come back to you or your family.

    What I Believe

    One of the reasons I believe in a code of honor is because of who I belive in. Also if you don't honor yourself, don't expect other people too. I also believe that you reap what you sow. So I try to watch how I treat people and even if people aren't kind at least I know I'm...
