A RECIPE FOR SET­TING THINGS RIGHT AGAIN

Star-Telegram - - Opinion -

Grow­ing up, I was taught right from wrong, re­spect for oth­ers and the im­por­tance of do­ing the right thing, by my par­ents, church and schools.

To­day, we want ev­ery­thing to be black and white. We cre­ate rules, reg­u­la­tions, poli­cies, pro­ce­dures and laws to elim­i­nate or re­duce the am­bi­gu­i­ties of life, but the re­al­ity is that our world is only shades of gray. Black and white do not re­ally ex­ist; there will al­ways be an ex­cep­tion, no mat­ter how small.

Our gov­ern­ment and much of so­ci­ety are bro­ken. We seem to see only red or blue, with­out vari­a­tion.

We need to get back to ba­sics, bring back ci­vil­ity, give and earn re­spect and do the right thing.
