Recent events have reminded me of the importance of the word we give, the promises we make, and their connection to our character.
What is spoken in goodwill, should not be undone….for any reason. Broken promise litter the space of our connectedness leaving those who have seen the promise broken, scarred and bitter. Too many people are willing to give up their word (and thus their character) for the sake of power, greed and/or bias.
In a better world, our word is our stamp of “being in the game, respectful and present”. It represent who we are here and above.
Should we have to settle for anything less?
