    If you want to consider that we are lower in the ranking which may be the reason why our integrity has diminshed , and in the years following our youth has gotten much worse. We have a corrupt government, both federal and local. We try to buy our way out of anything and the youth see this and try to emulate the corruption. Try to emulate a person of integrity !
