Honor and Dignity

Do you care about dignity? Would you ever allow yourself to be dignified?

What role does honor play in your life? Do you ever make a priority of being honorable?

I feel like when I grew up in the 70's, I witnessed the end of generations for whom honor and dignity and duty might have meant something. There seemed to broadly be social pressure to live honorably, to be upright, honest, and hard-working, among the older people I knew growing up.

But the culture at large pushed away from all that, in favor of spontaneous expression and greater opportunity to say, wear, and do anything that anyone felt like.

I want to steer my children, and influence culture in my small corner of the world, toward honor and dignity. I hope I can someday be known as a man both honorable and dignified. I hope I don't let down anyone who already sees me that way.
