In our world, people err, and when respectful, caring truthsayers come forth and help to right the road towards good work and service to others, error is righted.
In many situations, the truth line is blurry. We wonder what is right and what is not right? This is when those respected truthsayers ask good questions, investigate, and find the facts that matter.
When truth is transparent, forthcoming, and shared, everyone benefits. A lack of truth, understanding, and confusion muddies the road towards good work and service to one another. Blanketed truths can leave a community or individuals unsettled, wary, and afraid, but when truth prevails, people can move on and work better.
I continue to be a big fan of open, transparent share and information. I respect those people who are willing to ask and answer the tough questions, and meet any individual's need or question with respectful consideration. I highly regard those that understand the laws with respect, and if they disagree, work systematically and openly to make change.
We won't all agree all the time. There will be times when the truth is unclear. There will be conflict, but if we can meet that conflict, confusion, and disagreement with respectful discourse, fact finding, and transparent, kind effort, we will lay the path to good work, and in schools that means serving students well. Onward.
