yes, i have a conviction. so what?

Ethics.

Integrity.

Honesty.

What do these words mean?  Do they have any relevance in today’s world?  Why or why not? Should it have any significance to college students?  Why don’t they care?

Call me an optimist.  Call me naive.  Call me “fluffy” and “cheesy” and whatever else. That’s fine.

But do not call me delusional.  I KNOW for certain that we can teach people to give meaning to the work that they do.  I know we can teach people to care about the thing that they are doing with their utmost effort and honesty, not just the end product (like money or grades).

Well, even if you think I’m delusional.  It doesn’t hurt that I try, does it?  As Taylor Mali tells us…  I speak with conviction on this issue.
