2013 Virtual Conference on Moral Leadership

Welcome to day three of the Moral Leadership Conference. On this day, we hear about Corrie ten Boom from Dr. Kathleen Patterson. Corrie ten Boom took a moral stand during World War II by hiding Jews. She could have taken an easy road, one without suffering, and ridden out a war in relative peace. And yet, her morality would not allow such a choice. She continues to inspire to this day.
