Out of ALL of the values you have listed, I think caring is potentially the MOST important. It IS the basis for compassion, understanding, love, friendships, and SOOOOO much more. I have a "group" ( you can join on my Facebook page ) that you can join that I call "Conscientious Protectors". Read about it and join if you like. If we all cared more about the important things in life ( which is why I LOVE's TV commercials ), then this world would be a FAR better place for all.

To be wanted gives you more confidence than you realize, folks that are quiet feel that their words have no value.

Saying you care is words people hear. Going just one step beyond, being honest and doing something "just because", that's the ULTIMATE proof of love and care. THEY GO HAND-IN-HAND
