Ethical answers are in your pen (or keyboard)

I met with a small class of 7th graders yesterday to discuss ethics.

One student shared that when she does something wrong at home, she often writes an apology letter at night and leaves it on her parents’ bed before going to sleep.

It reminded me of the power of putting thoughts to paper. Not only after an event but also before we take action. There is magic in writing things down. What we know to be true surfaces.

When you face your next ethical dilemma, consider writing about it. Privately or publicly. The truth will more readily show itself.

  1. This is an excellent recommendation… Putting things down in writing always help clarify your thinking and put things in perspective…
    Hope all is well with you and your family..best Brigitte H.
