A TO Z OF RESOURCE MANAGEMENT
My parents sent me to a private school. My mom sacrificed her own needs to make sure that my clothes were as stylish as everyone else's. She did not want other girls to judge me. It is sad that in high school style becomes a standard. It is sad that it does not matter how good a girl is, she loses confidence if she does not keep up with the styles. On the other hand the school my brothers went to (All Saint's) had a uniform for the students. Now if you looked at a group of students you would not be able to tell who was rich and who was poor. What I liked about their school was the motto "Virtue Alone Ennobles". I asked several adults the meaning of the word "Virtue". They gave me all different answers, all meaning a quality in a good human being. For example if a person prays a lot but does not share his food, he would not be virtuous, or if a person holds a degree or two but criticizes others and puts them down then he or she would not be virtuous. Even the most stylish girl who wears the latest and most expensive outfit would not be virtuous if she thinks of herself as being better than anyone else. One of my friends told me that to her a good human being is more important than whether or not he or she is from the moral majority.
Would I be wrong if I say that we are all counting on each other's virtue? It can be a resource for all of us if we are not judgmental.
