Janelle Jones stopped at a drive-thru Burger King on her way home from work to pick up some food for dinner. Once home, she opened the bag of food and instead found $2600 in cash. By mistake, one of the Burger King employees gave Janelle that day’s bank deposit. After some deliberation with her husband, Janelle decided to return the money to Burger King, as keeping it was not in line with her religious beliefs.
I reminded students that this news story illustrates that more often than not, we know how to make the right choice; the hard part is making the right choice. As we head into the final term, it is inevitable that students will be faced with a range of moral dilemmas both in and out of school. My hope is that they will make positive choices.
