I try to be open, honest, and transparent. I try to tell the truth. I try to act with integrity and be of high character.

We’re taught to tell the truth. We’re taught to be honest.

But we’re punished for telling the truth and punished for being honest.

It’s a catch-22. We’re damned if we do and dammed if we don’t. Sometimes it’s a no-win situation.

We’re not perfect. We all slip up. We all sin.

Just do our best to be good people and do the right thing.
