Bulletin Board Ideas:
  • Honor is what you show when others turn their backs.
        (Michael Robinson)
  • Honor is never taken, but always given.  (Michael Westhoff)
  • He who lives without principles dies without honor.    Norse Saying
  • Do not speak against your neighbor until you have walked in his moccasins for seven suns.  Indian Proverb
