Ethics and the role it plays in my personal/professional life

Please put in APA format and cite correctly

Ethical comes from the Greek ethos “moral character” and describes a person or behavior as right in the moral sense – truthful, fair, and honest. Sometimes the word is used for people who follow the moral standards of their profession. An ethical lawyer or doctor does not try to take advantage of the client or patient’s unfortunate situation. If something has happened and you are not sure what the right thing to do is, you are having an ethical dilemma.
Merriam Webster dictionary defines ethics as:
ethics: the discipline dealing with what is good and bad and with moral duty and obligation
2 : a set of moral principles : a theory or system of moral values
the present-day materialistic ethic
an old-fashioned work ethic
: a set of moral principles : a theory or system of moral values
the present-day materialistic ethic
an old-fashioned work ethic
Ethics plays similar and different roles in my personal and professional setting in the sense of innate moral obligation to govern my behavior accordingly.  I am accustomed to treating everyone fairly, just, and without prejudices.  It is an unspoken code of respect not only to those in authority but every human being. I realize that  I cause a reaction to take place either positively or negatively not only with my choice of words but body stance, hand motions and many other nuances.
In my personal life ethics is concerned with the choices I make.  The choices I make in life determine the quality of my life.   My choices have consequences not only for me but for my family.  One wrong choice could change the course of my life.  
Professional ethics refer to ethics that govern my professional life, my job, or personal business.  
Ethics teaches us what we ought to do, not what we do. We ought to treat others with kindness, compassion, respect, and so on. In other words, an ethical person practices applying virtues, our character traits, in making everyday decisions. … In other words, consider what to do by personalizing the dilemma.N
Situational ethics are ethics or morals which can change due to the insuing situation.   An example is someone knowing that morally and ethically killing is a crime however find themselves in a situation where a mass murderer has invaded their space.  The choice or ethical stance changes with the situation presented to kill or be killed.  Something that was once considered immoral prior is now moral. 
We must respect ethics as they can shift or change our moral thinking or stance depending on country or culture. It is important, respectful and necessary to study geographical ethics prior to visiting a different country or showing respects to different cultures.  
An example of geographical ethics is women in some gulf countries do not drive cars. 
My personal code of ethics that can be applied to my personal and professional life are as follows:
Be Global – supportive and welcoming of every background religion. This includes all races, cultures, sex, size, age, religion, physical and mental ability.
Be Thoughtful – your actions and decisions affect others
Be Respectful of difference of opinions- no one agrees all the time, be mindful that everyone has something to support the majority
Choose your speech wisely – words have power – do not offend, discriminate, insult,
