INTEGRITY

Integrity is always an issue at various levels. Integrity begins and ends and leads with love. That supersedes my desire to prove my case and win my battles. If I prove my case and win my battles and have not won the hearts of my detractors or those whom I contest, I have lost integrity. I would have proven only that being right is not all it's cracked up to be; I would have proven that crusading and case-winning gets me what's it's always gotten crusaders and litigious wranglers: momentary satisfaction eclipsed by multiplied separation, division, alienation, hatred, destruction, and further exclusion. Somehow, integrity invites us--beckons us, calls us--to find another way.
