Family Values

“We learned about dignity and decency – that how hard you work matters more than how much you make … that helping others means more than just getting ahead yourself.
We learned about honesty and integrity – that the truth matters…that you don’t take shortcuts or play by your own set of rules … and success doesn’t count unless you earn it fair and square.
We learned about gratitude and humility – that so many people had a hand in our success, from the teachers who inspired us to the janitors who kept our school clean … and we were taught to value everyone’s contribution and treat everyone with respect.”

~ First Lady Michelle Obama speaking last night at the 2012 Democratic National Convention Charlotte, North Carolina USA
