Legacy

Kindred,

Is your word not your bond?  

Does your handshake not mean you will honor your words? 

How can you expect or inspire trust if your word(s) mean nothing?  

No honor, no trust, no character means no relationship (with the Lord or humanity).  

How do you expect the people to trust when there are no truths, no honor or honorable conduct?  

If you hope to build trust or restore trust, perhaps the law should reflect and enforce unalienable truths in both words and deeds.  

Uniform ethical standards of conduct should be enforced across the board.  

If the laws are archaic, then it should be updated to address the concerns of today's society.  

No one should be allowed to color so far outside the lines of honor, decency and rule of law that he or she makes a mockery of our country, the people and democracy.  

Just as we have referees to ensure good sportsmanship in conducting our games, we need referees (ethics committees, justices) or conduct laws (no slander, melicious lies or misinformation) to ensure good sportsmanship in our politics and goodwill in public service (public welfare).

Different teams should not devolve into warfare within the league.      

Poor sports should not be tolerated or enabled.  

We take turns in leadership.  

With each new coach, we give a chance to prove himself or herself.  

Time will tell how competent and how good each coach and player will be.  

History will record each triumph and each failure.  

Her or his track record will be clear with the passage of time.  

The legacy, good or bad, will be remembered.
