Moral Character! By L. Don Oliver
Education, Experience, and Perseverance, Are the paths to one's goal; Tolerance, Compassion, and Charity, Are the avenues to one's soul;
The Responsibility is unto ourselves, To believe in that which we can achieve; With Innovation, Determination and Discipline, We can achieve that in which we believe;
To be Exceptional at what we attempt, Inspiration, Invention, Industry are the keys; To have Harmony within our lives; Humility, Self Actuation, Example are the fees;
Awareness of how others feel, Insults we must never coddle, Treating others with Respect. "The Golden Rule" is the model;

Organization, Cooperation, and Commitment,
Are the prerequisites to be understood;
To succeed in the game of life, All must play by the rules; By preparing an even playing field, Equality, Courage, Action are the tools;
Have Forgiveness for the wrong others do, Be Considerate and show that we care; Be Grateful for what we have, And always Be Willing to share;
Trusting in the Honesty of one's self, To Accomplish that in which we apply; Believing in Family, Friends, and Country, Will make better citizens of you and I;
