One of the most trying things in our life is a stage where one has to choose what values and beliefs to live and die for. Human society is full of models and examples of persons who have embraced their own values, and what is awful is that today's young man or woman is left alone to choose.
We need not look beyond or outside ourselves, instead, we should look into our own hearts. If we do, we will surely discover passions and drives that are either constructive or destructive: our capacity to love or hate, to give or possess, to build or destroy, to forgive or avenge. When we choose what is positive and shun what is negative, we will naturally discover what model or example to embrace, and there we will discover the true meaning of values in our lives.
