Integrity is important no matter where you are and where you go. You may be at Moo Sul Kwan Taekwondo, home, school or at an after school activities but you should always use your integrity to make the right decisions, even when hanging out with friends.
Integrity has more than one meaning. One of the meanings is having the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles. For example, if you ask your mom or dad to play a video game and they asked you if you had cleaned your room; you should be honest and say yes or no. Integrity also means the state of being whole or undivided. For example if you’re playing a group game in P.E. you should play fair with everybody.
To me, integrity means to be honest and people should be fair to each other. Whether you are spending the night at somebodies house or at a birth
day party you should be respectful to the adults that are there. Using respect and being honest at home is super important. You can use respect and honesty everyday 24/7 at home with your parents, siblings, and pets. For example, you can give your dog some exercise by taking him/her on a walk.
You can use integrity no matter where you are. Some examples may be home, school, at the Colorado Taekwondo Institute, sports, etc. Integrity is super important especially when you are on a team, like a sports team or the CTI black belt team. Everybody on the team can use integrity to make the team become even better!
Integrity is a big part of manners and behavior so you should use it in the right ways and the best ways possible. Remember to use integrity throughout your life not just in extra activities.
