What is the Value of Values? Values differ from one person to another, vary from culture to culture and are appreciated on different levels depending on the walks of life. For the most part, the values held by nomadic African tribes are not the same as an average American family. Those predominantly Christian countries hold some values very dear which other cultures relegate to lesser importance. Sometimes our own beliefs held from childhood are overridden by new set of learned or acquired morals or lifestyles.
