Our focus in our Character Counts commentaries this week continued with the theme of character. On Wednesday, Rylen Bourguet started by providing different notions of the word "character". Character, as part of ones integrity, is not something inherited but something that grows in how one thinks and acts each day (Defining Character
). On Thursday, Albert Ortiz talked about the importance of intent. All true acts of integrity involve doing it for the right reasons (The Importance of Intent
). Follow the links to read the full commentaries!
