Virtue of the Week: Loyalty

Loyalty is staying true to someone. It is standing up for something you believe in without wavering. It is being faithful to your family, country, school, friends or ideals when the going gets tough as well as when things are good. With loyalty, you build relationships that last forever.

You are practicing loyalty when you:

– Stand up for people and ideas you believe in,

– Choose your friends wisely,

– Are a faithful friend through good times and bad,

– Don’t allow loyalty to lead you into trouble,

– Don’t let others come between you and your friends, and

– Are loyal to yourself.


I am loyal to the people and ideas I care about. I stand by my friends and loved ones. I keep my commitments.

The Family Connection was established in 2005 by the Community Foundation of the Virgin Islands as an early-childhood initiative. The mission of TFC is to strengthen the community child care and early education infrastructure in the USVI by building awareness of the importance of early learning and development for success and working with community agencies to promote quality care and education.

One of its efforts is the Virtues Project, an international initiative focused on building peaceful and caring communities.

The Source supports the Virtues Project. We will publish one of the virtues developed by the project each week.
