We cherish the basic freedom of individual expression,
our individual rights to be, to think, to act, to fulfill
our destinies as we understand them knowing that
our own freedom should only be limited by respect for
the rights of others to their individual freedoms. This
founding principle of our great nation is the guiding
principle of our enterprise.
We understand that the choices we make in life have
consequences and that we are accountable for those consequences.
We strive to make choices that are constructive and
upbuilding for ourselves, our families, our neighbors,
our colleagues and customers, and for the communities
in which we live.
We firmly adhere to a personal code of values. These
values are the bedrock of our relationships, both personal
and professional. Our integrity develops out of respect
for ourselves and others, and it carries with it a strong
sense of moral responsibility. We demonstrate integrity
by striving to do what is right.
We are a community, a free association of human beings
sharing values, bonded by daily experiences and secure
in the knowledge that we care for and respect each other.
We are united by our humanity and our shared commitments.
We acknowledge the differences among us, as well as
our common needs. We respect the guidance of those who
are wiser and more experienced than we are in building
our enterprise and in sustaining our unique bond.
We seize the opportunity to learn to seek, to
listen, to grow and to achieve our full potential. Moreover,
we support the learning of others by striving to open
minds, to enlighten those around us and to assist those
engaged in the processes of development and discovery.
Learning is one of our highest priorities. It is constant
and without end.
