An essay written for me by a prospective student for next year quoted an American Journalist of whom I was unaware. Dennis Prager, the American journalist, said: “Goodness is about character - integrity, honesty, kindness, generosity, moral courage, and the like. More than anything else, it is about how we treat other people.” The boy’s essay used this concept of how we treat other people as a litmus test for goodness or evil. He writes eloquently about it. Being kind, honest, and generous defines one as good. However, he did not stop there. Being good, having moral courage, also means that “the will to stand up for something is paramount.” Being good, he says, is “not merely the absence of doing evil” or “turning a blind eye” to it.
