Terry Fox's Integrity

"Dream's are possible if people try"


Having integrity means doing the right thing in a reliable way. It's a personality trait that we admire, since it means a person has a moral compass that doesn't waver. It literally means having "wholeness" of character. It is the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles.

The Plan

Terry fox displayed his integrity by deciding that he would run across Canada to raise awareness and funds for cancer research. Thus, the start of the Marathon of Hope. It was when he decided to meet this new challenge head on and not only overcome his disability, but conquer it in such a way that he could never look back and say it disabled him. "I am not a dreamer, and I am not saying that this will initiate any kind of definite answer or cure to cancer. But I believe in miracles. I have to." This sentence displayed Terry Fox's integrity in such a way that helped people like him who have already lost faith ,believe again. That there are still people like Terry Fox who believed that they still have a chance.

Why Integrity Is Never Easy

I chose this article because it had an impact on me. It says on the article by Ron Ashkenas that integrity isn't really that easy to do. We people think that "Oh okay, integrity is having moral uprightness. Okay I'll do that." but it takes a strong person to develop this kind of trait. It means knowing what is right from wrong but not only that, it means having the strength and courage to do what is right even if you could gain more for yourself by doing wrong. It is having sense of control even when temptations come.

Integrity Gets You Everything

People forget that since integrity is the least common attribute that an individual has these days that it is often the most searched for quality. We now live in a world where you can't just trust anybody. Especially with money because money gets people to do things they know that is wrong but do it just so they can get richer. Since integrity is hard to find, it's often the biggest attribute an individual could have.
