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.

We must take care physically, mentally and spiritually so we can do and be the best for others as well.

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

If one does not care is he living at all?
Robert Stewart, bethel

Caring for the well-being of others implies that our actions should speak more than words. It is through our actions that people will know how much we are caring for the well-being of others.

At school this is an everyday duty. It is thought out through love.

Caring comes from strong family values and is enhanced every time we treat people the way we wish to be treated.

The one you care about might not even care about you... but do you know what you have to do? You have to move on and show them that you don't even care,and trust me he will come back to you.

No one cares how much you know, until they know how much you care!
