Trust: Belief that someone or something is reliable, good, honest, effective, etc.
Trustworthy: Able to be relied on to do or provide what is needed or right; deserving of trust
Integrity: Firm adherence to a code of especially moral or artistic values; incorruptibility.
In order to trust someone you must know what they believe and they must show, not say, they are reliable, good, honest, and effective.
Trustworthiness involves the repeated action of doing the right thing in order for anyone to rely upon ones ability to do what is needed or right.
To be incorruptible one must not owe allegiance to any one or thing that can and will require a compromise of their moral and/or artistic values.
Currently, our elected leaders have shown they are untrustworthy and that they have no integrity.
The question then becomes, “Why do the American people trust them to run our country and its systems?”
In a country that Constitutionally guarantees our freedom of speech, we prefer to allow our elected leaders to speak for us, trusting that they will say and do what is best even though we have had decades of proof that they have not.
The failure of the Rochester City School District Board of Education and the administrators they have hired to provide our children with an excellent education is proof that they can not be trusted to lead our district yet they are continually voted into office.
It is our irresponsibility as citizens that has caused this continuous failure of government since we are the government and we allow untrustworthy individuals to lead us.
The reality is this; America cannot be the great nation it was intended to be until its citizens begin to take responsibility for its success or failure.
To not take responsibility is to not recognize and learn from our mistakes in order to make things better.
Our children deserve a trustworthy leadership that has the integrity to do what is necessary to provide an excellent education to all children and not a six figure salary to adults.
