A Message from Jackie A. Strange Former Deputy Postmaster General United States Postal Service Never before in our history has there been a greater need for individuals to embrace the revitalization and enforcement of ethics. During the last decade, we have seen great leaders fall, institutions fail, and nations falter because of unethical practices. Now is the time for all people to step back, look within, and evaluate their ethical behavior. Since the beginning of time, ethics has continued to be the moral fiber that makes man do what is right. It is the axis of successful enterprise within our society, and it is on this premise that we succeed or fail. This concept has never been challenged, nor has it changed. As man’s knowledge increases and behaviors change, ethics remains the core of this ideology. Individuals and organizations gain empowerment through ethical practices, and through these practices trust is built. Because trust opens communications and stimulates motivation, people work at their highest potential and expectation, and the organization profits. You act and people around you react. Therefore, you must constantly ensure that you are doing the right things that protect individuals and organizations. Does every decision you make individually or organizationally reflect this attitude? Do you have the moral conviction to stand alone, if necessary? In the face of adversity, are you willing to fight for those principles in which you believe? Are you willing to forego personal gain rather than compromise your integrity? Every day you are setting examples and making decisions that individuals and/or organizations follow. Will they rise or fall because of you?A Message from Jackie A.
