Real or Counterfeit?

On a recent visit to Franciscan University of Steubenville, I heard a great comparison that I felt was worth sharing.

Michael Hernon, Vice President for Advancement, gave the example of how bank tellers are taught to distinguish real money from counterfeit ...

Very simply they are given tons and tons of real bills to feel, sift through, detect ... that in becoming so familiar with the real ... you eventually are able to catch the fake.

As coaches and parents, we need to do something very similar with our kids - we need to surround our young people with men and women of virtue ... so much so that the kids naturally learn "the texture and feel" for what real virtue is ... and in the process they can then catch the fake - the vice - the weak.
