Among us, who is above must be in service of the others. This doesn't mean we have to wash each other's feet every day, but we must help one another.
Above all, I would teach him to tell the truth Truth-telling, I have found, is the key to responsible citizenship. The thousands of criminals I have seen in 40 years of law enforcement have had one thing in common: Every single one was a liar.
