I Try To Do What Is Right

Good Faith/Sincerity might not be enough anymore. 182 People

    More People Than You Think

    Seems obvious, but it's not always easy. In fact, it's a challenge sometimes. It's a morality most of us wish was natural or automatic, you know, good feels right, but too many times we stray down a polar opposite path. Why? Because the wrong option is more exciting...

    Right

    I try to do what is right through my eyes. I do my best to respect what others believe, but in the end it has to come down to what i believe. I only have one life to live, and i don't plan to waste it.
