Medals of decency

THIS week I had a visitor to Coffs Harbour say to me, "I would not walk around this city at night."

We have an urgent need to help our children, young men and women, understand that to become a decent man or woman is not determined by alcohol excesses, driving irresponsibly, sexual exploits, tattoos or aggression.

They are not the badges of true manhood or womanhood.

They are not "rites of passage".

Self-respect, respect for others, kindness and serving people and the community, are.

These are the medals of decency; the source of enduring friendships and happiness.
