This blog is for the use of 8th grade students to share and improve their writing. The students will respond to novel discussions and will choose topics of interest to blog about and I will moderate and administrate their posts. Our goal is to share our voices with an authentic audience who will provide us feedback on our thoughts. We hope you enjoy our work!
What is integrity? In my opinion,
integrity is when an opportunity occurs where you can make a profit by doing
the wrong thing, but you do the right thing instead, not because someone is
watching, but out of the goodness of your heart. In our world today not many
people are left who have integrity. If the opportunity occurs many people will
just do what is beneficial for them, rather than what is the right thing to do.
A person of integrity lives a moral, honest life. In order to live a life
of integrity you must do what is right. Say you see someone forget something,
but it is something that you want or need, a person of integrity wouldn’t even
have to think twice about giving it to it’s rightful owner. Having integrity
isn’t just doing the right thing when someone is watching, or when the
situation is major. You must do the right, and moral thing everyday. In school
if you are having trouble with your work, a person of integrity would ask for
help, a person without integrity would take answers from others. Integrity is a
pretty hard thing to have, but it is easier to live a moral life if you are
taught to live that way.
I try my best in my everyday life to have integrity. Some days it is harder than others, because maybe you forgot to study for a test, or you found money on the ground that does not belong to you. Even though it is really hard when things like that happen, you must do what is right. I always think I must react how I would want others to react if the situation was the other way around. I am not always a person of integrity, but most of the time I try my best to do what is honest and right. I want to live a life of integrity, and as I get older, but
right now I am not really a person of integrity. Even though I am not always a person of integrity, if I find something that doesn’t belong to me I am not going to keep it, even if I do need it. There may be some doubt in my own head, and the heads of others, but I will do what is moral no matter what the circumstances. Click the link below to find a few things out about me All About Emily
