A very good morning to one and all present here. Today, I’ll be giving a short speech on the topic of integrity.
Integrity is a word with dual definitions, both being equally important. Google clearly puts these meanings down.
The first definition of integrity is that it is “the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles.” In this sense, to be an integral person is to be honourable and righteous. Such a person will have a good sense of what is ethical and what is morally wrong and would be virtuous. A person with integrity is thus one who would be respected and found trustworthy in society, making it an important value in life.
The second definition of integrity would be “the state of being whole and undivided.” This definition, as can be seen, pertains more to the concept of unity. This integrity is especially important in terms of nations and states wherein the unitedness of the citizens becomes crucial for peace and security.
