Morals, values, and ethics are one of the most important characteristics of a person. A persons Moral and ethic views define who we are as a human being and show what we stand for. Many contributing factors come in to play when determining a person`s ethics, morals and values. The first being upbringing and childhood experiences, then there if personal influences’ in your life like family and friend. Then there is culture, religious beliefs and influence in your life. There are times when a person`s beliefs do not agree with someone else’s, which does not mean that one of these people is wrong, it means that we, as individuals, do not all think the same. As a whole, most people have a good sense of right and wrong, which is to say that for the most part most people have good morals, values, and ethics. My own personal code of ethics started at my birth and continues through the past forty years of my life. The major contributors to my code of ethics are my parents, grandparents, sisters, friends, teachers and later life experiences. My parents taught me right from wrong, while my grandparents reinforced their rules. My sisters, although they tried to steer me into mischief sometimes, never tried to teach me bad behaviors. My friends were strong contributors during the teenage years, although we did find our own mischief, it was never against our morals, values, or ethics. I believe we were regular teenagers doing normal things to keep busy (nobody ever ended up in jail because of our doings). My teachers, from grammar school through high school have all been positive influences in my life, trying to point me in the right direction and giving me strong, sound advice. My later life experiences taught me some hard lessons; to trust what I can see, not always what I hear, there are evil people in this world that only want to hurt people both mentally and physically, to depend on myself because when it comes down to it, I am really all I have (besides my children, family, and friends), and to pick myself up after being knocked down and be a stronger person because of all I have been through. These people have all helped to shape me into the person I am today, which is a strong willed person with a strong set of ethical beliefs. Although some of the later life lessons were the hardest I have ever been through, they have made me a stronger person and given me a higher set of morals, values, and ethics. I also took a good hard look at the criminal justice system during those times and tribulations, and I came to the conclusion that it works when it wants to, but not always. Every individual is different and believes in their own values that were taught to the as they were growing up and sometimes something might happen to them that changes everything, in their mind. Realizing this gives me
