El Reno, OK
Today's word is Integrity.
But first, we moved 196 miles from Cartwright OK to outside of El Reno at the Lucky Star Casino. It was a pleasant drive up here. We stayed here last March while catching up with my cousin Bonnie who lives over in Oklahoma City. Hope to see her again later in the week.
Gotta love this place. It is FREE camping with 50 amp, water and sewer. That's right, I said FREE. For as long as one wants to stay. Not only that, Wednesday is Senior Day so we went right in and each got our $10.00 vouchers which we will give back to them a little later when we lose it at the slots.
INTEGRITY. I am reminded of that commercial I see on TV. I think it is for an insurance company but I am not really sure. It shows people "doing the right thing". Wiping up spills they did not make, holding doors open for a person with packages, etc. etc.
We see so often today people who only look out for number one. Sometimes is seems good manners have gone the way of the dinosaur. Be it jumping in line ahead of someone who was already there, tossing trash out the car window for someone else to pick up, talking loudly on the cell phone in a public place not caring if it is annoying to everyone else around. Rudeness.
But wait! Is this the majority of the population? I hope not. I still believe most people live with integrity. They don't steal. They work hard. Most people still care and chose to go by the rules and play fair. I see this as we travel and volunteer. I am always amazed as we talk to people we meet along the way. We, too, need to chose to be polite, caring and have integrity. To live as an example to other people who might be watching. Just like the people in that insurance commercial.
What do you think? Is integrity still in vogue or a thing of the past.
