Honesty
It’s the cornerstone of all human conduct. Honesty gives evidence to truth and sincerity. This value embraces all human actions and thoughts which generates trust and does not allow lies or deceit. People take a lifetime building trust by their honest acts but can be lost in a second.

Respect
Respect is a reciprocal value which is applicable throughout a lifetime. Through respect, people can relate and understand better, as well as, share different interests and needs. It is the way of life which leads to peace and harmony within different aspects of life. Like Benito Juarez, former Mexican President, once said, “The Respect to Other Rights Leads to Peace”. This value makes possible a civil interaction and accepts diversity of people.

Responsibility
Responsibility shows the qualities of the human being and gives accountability to the assumed tasks. Responsible people are the ones that fulfil their tasks and are capable to analyze situations and act according to its consequences.

Justice
Justice refers to be nonbiased and give everyone what corresponds by right. The people who dictate justice, they must do it in a nonbiased, responsible and applying it within the Law. Nevertheless, although in some specific situations, justice might look unfair, we must remember that it is applied as what it is considered as morally correct or justifiable for the greater good.

Liberty
Liberty is a fundamental human right, it is the right that people have to take decisions, act, and assume responsibility of their actions. Once liberty does not limit the liberty of the rest. Nevertheless, liberty is limited to keep safety, protect general welfare, and avoid any abuse of power or authority.
