I always tell my players that a great definition of character is 'how you act when no one is watching you'. A man with tremendous character is Chesley Sullenberger.
When US Airways pilot, Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger, splash-landed his jetliner in the Hudson River on January 15th, everyone on board escaped safely. But left in the cargo hold was a book the aviation hero had checked out from his local library.
Library officials say Sullenberger asked for an extension and waiver of overdue fees. The librarians say they were struck by Sullenberger's sense of responsibility and did him one better: They're waiving all fees, even lost book fees, and placing a template in the replacement book dedicating it to him.
The subject of that lost book? Professional ethics. His plane's passengers were blessed to be in the hands of a man of character and strength.
