Standing for what you believe in regardless of the odds against you and the pressure that tears at your resistance…is Courage
Keeping a smile on your face for the sake of supporting others when inside you feel like dying…is Strength
Stopping at nothing and doing what’s in your heart that you know is right…is Determination
Doing more than is expected to make another’s life a little more bearable, without uttering a single complaint…is Compassion
Helping a friend in need to the best of your ability, no matter the time or effort…is Loyalty
Holding your head high and being the best you know you can be when life seems to fall apart at your feet, facing each difficulty with the confidence that time will bring you better tomorrows, and never giving up…is Confidence
Hold you head high and make your life better every day.
