“Your beliefs become your thoughts, Your thoughts become your words, Your words become your actions, Your actions become your habits, Your habits become your values, Your values become your destiny.” (Mahatma Gandhi) I find this quote to be very touching, true, and eye-opening because as a younger person I have yet to fully find out who I am as a human being. Yes, of coarse I have a general idea of what my values are and what moral values I should follow in order to seem socially acceptable, but that also seems to be the problem.

I believe that we are all just as equal as the next person depending on our skills and corporate spiritualism. The only time race should be taken into consideration is when affirmative action comes into the picture but even then we are all still equal and working together and with teamwork and diversity we might even come across new morals and values as we accept new cultures along the way. It is quite apparent that the question should not be “where our values and morals were
