Virtue of the Week: Commitment

Week of May 6 – 12: Commitment

Commitment is caring deeply about something or someone. It is deciding carefully what you want to do, then giving 100 percent, holding nothing back. You give your all to friendship, a task, or something you believe in. You finish what you start. You keep your promises.

You are practicing commitment when you:

• Think before you make a promiseKeep every agreement you make

• Make decisions confidently

• Go the extra mile

• Give 100 percent to everything you do

• Are faithful to people you care about


I commit to my decisions. I keep my agreements. I give my all. I am a faithful friend.

The Source supports the Virtues Project, an international initiative focused on building peaceful and caring communities, publishing the 52 virtues developed by the project every week for the next year. The Source takes no credit for anything other than providing a prominent place for these ideals to be seen and hopefully discussed and, more importantly, lived.

The Virtues Project is an international initiative focused on building peaceful and caring communities aligned to 52 virtues – such as “compassion,” “integrity,” “respect.” The Virtues Project promotes community capacity-building to teach positive behaviors and attitudes and contribute to healthy and supportive environments across sectors. This is an initiative originated with a work group of Early Childhood Advisory Committee of the Children and Families Council and is moving forward with support from the Community Foundation of the Virgin Islands. We are working in collaboration with the Department of Education to infuse V.I. culture into the messages and to implement The Virtues Project in the public schools. The goal is to engage the community in discussion and awareness of the “Virtue of the Week” in schools, child care settings, home, and the workplace through the media, religious institutions, schools and centers, government agencies, and business organizations.
