At least three things are seemingly apparent that make hidden things not so hidden: Instant news through social media, cell phones and the inundation of video cameras. There are few secrets anymore.
“Character is what you do when you think no one is looking—and in today’s world, someone is always looking.” James Stavridis, retired Navy Admiral.

“What I tell you in the darkness, speak in the light; and what you hear whispered in your ear, proclaim upon the housetops.” Jesus
