Pillar: Fairness

Teacher Mrs. Carney says, "While walking to lunch, my line leader, Joseph, waited patiently, instructing others to calm down and let the stragglers catch up to their class. Others wanted him to keep walking. He thought it was only fair to let the stragglers join the group so they could sit with their own class. So he waited."
