We saw (and heard) Cornel West speak Thursday night, and I am thankful we were there. The speech was based on four questions asked by W.E.B DuBois.

I am a Christian, but I sweep my beliefs under the rug of convenience.
I am an environmentalist, but I am scared to offend others with my words and actions.
I am a husband, father, son, brother, and friend, but I juggle the people in my life more than I embrace them.
I love books and reading, but I seldom read.
I love time in nature but I spend free time on my phone.
And the damn shame of it all is that I am making no effort change that.
Thank you, West and DuBois, for shining a light on integrity.
May your list lead to integrity, truth, decency, and virtue.
Thank you for reading. How's your list?
