WRITER DOESN'T KNOW THE MEANING OF MORALS

I feel compelled to respond to Nicole Kaznowski's "My View" regarding morals. Nowhere in Webster's Dictionary are morals defined with any reference to religious beliefs. Morals (ethics) are defined as follows: "Concerned with right conduct or its principles. . . . Synonyms: upright, honest, virtuous, honorable."

She mentions that her "morals" do not leave her with any obligation to help any man. In the 1960s, we had the "if it feels good, do it" generation, and we're still dealing with the succeeding generation, which became the me-first generation.

I certainly hope this young lady does not use her biology major as a steppingstone to the practice of medicine. I wish her dark outlook on life could be changed by reading this guideline each day, "The greatest thing one can do with one's life is to contribute to the well-being of another." There is nothing about religion in this statement.
