One of the general complaints about almost all politicians in all parties is that they often say things that they think people want to hear, rather than what they really believe. They do this because they want to be liked, and/or they want to be elected. The Code says “I will conduct myself with caring and honorable behavior off the field…” We all know that there are times when we say things – and times when we are silent – because we want to be liked. It takes courage to do the difficult thing, and there are few things more difficult than saying something you believe, with which others disagree. Are there some issues with your team that should be talked about? Or your school? Is it hard to discuss them because not everyone will agree? What can you do about this?
