Over these last 696 days I have been looking at everything through the glasses of integrity and trust. I see Europe as no exception. As they head deeper into their financial crisis, they can put the blame squarely on the culture of corruption. Surely, this must be the real problem. It is true in any human related catastrophe. When we break trust and integrity, we all lose, and lose big.
It all starts with the actions of an individual, as they get away with a low level of corruption, others jump in and it grows in size and deed. Like a cancer in the body, a whole country gets sick. How many acts of denial, nepotism, tax evasion, handouts, bribes and budget manipulation do you think it took to create this crisis situation.
The United States is not far behind, we are headed down the same road. We have to face the truth, we are also in a crisis of trust. Let’s stop pointing fingers and realize we all have responsibility and we all need to sacrifice before it is too late. We may still have time to stop the development of the riots in own our streets. Our leaders need to stand up and share this message, as we look for their leadership we can start by individually working on our integrity. This is the one and only thing we have control over.
The time is now, we need your help and you need ours. We have to get it right! If we don’t keep building trust in our beloved America, it will surely be doomed for the ropes.
