Mission Statement

This site offers a way for our participants to find a path toward a better future by learning from the stories of those who have chosen good over evil. It urges readers to reach for the good, not only in times of crisis, but also in their routine, daily lives.

Goodness is essentially a skill you learn through daily practice. We look forward to your help by telling us about your own situation, your own choices, and ways in which you’ve chosen to do what’s right in your own life. As a clearinghouse for stories of moral and ethical change, the Constant Choice can help each of us, as individuals, change the world for the better—by making constant good choices, day by day.

The Constant Choice website was founded by Peter Georgescu, who was abducted in childhood by the Communists, separated from his parents for eight years, and put to work in a forced labor camp in Romania. After being reunited with his parents in America, he rose to become CEO of a multinational communications company, and has devoted himself to explore and explain the nature and impact of both good and evil behavior. You can also explore his views and read about his experiences in his book The Constant Choice.
