"The man who can keep a secret may be wise, but he is not half as wise as the man with no secrets to keep."- E.W. Howe
I'm going to keep this a short read...
By now, most of you are probably familiar with the "sorority girl letter" that was posted to the internet and then went completely viral. It became a horrible embarrassment to the organization and I would imagine to those individuals involved.
Similarly, posts in a fraternity chapter's private Facebook group were leaked and exposed sexism, possible hazing, and disrespect for university administrators. The post becoming public became a major problem for the chapter and the national fraternity.
How did these posts get out if they were private? Clearly someone on the inside decided to expose them. A sister or brother either felt the actions needed to be brought to light to correct them, or, quite possibly, he/she got pissed off at someone and decided to stick it to them by exposing the truth.
I think the important lesson is to live your values when you think no one is looking the same way you live your values in public. If you live up to the vows you took and the values you recite, there is nothing negative to expose - right?
