"Loyalty cannot be blueprinted. It cannot be produced on an assembly line. In fact, it cannot be manufactured at all, for its origin is the human heart-the center of self-respect and human dignity. It is a force which leaps into being only when conditions are exactly right for it-and it is a force very sensitive to betrayal."
Maurice R. Franks
I am and have been loyal to many causes, people, and organizations. I have stood up, when noone else would, because I believed I recognized soul, integrity, and truthfulness.
Lately, my interpretations of who and what is honorable has proven to be skewed. Suddenly, I find myself on the 'pulpit', hoping to uphold truths and purpose, and those I am standing up for, are not there...they have missed the plot.
I am standing on uncertain ground. My core will continue to pursue the value of real and hopeful intent. My vulnerability in owning that, provides fear and sadness. The only consistency is my internal intuition and compass of morality.
