"Always do the right thing, just because it is the right thing to do".

Bobby Thank You - remembering what you said has helped me through the hard times in my law enforcement career. Integrity is what you have left when everything else turns bad. A man does not need a reason to choose to do the right thing. Doing the right thing is a personal choice every day a choice not to allow hurt hate or evil to win, a choice based on personal character because it is the right thing to do.
