Identity theft is a big problem in the age of credit cards and the Internet. It’s not hard for someone to retrieve your vital information and pose as you. If that were to happen, however, it would not change the essence of who you are. The thief would not steal your true identity—just some superficial information about you.
Your identity goes much deeper than your ID numbers. In reality you are who you are. Nothing really matters except whether or not you are identified as a good man or woman.
