TEACHING BY EXAMPLE
If you want trust, trust others. If you want respect, respect others. If you want help, help others. If you want love and peace in your life, give them away. If you want great friends, be one. That’s how it works.
François Duc De La Rochefoucauld
Frank H. Crane
The inability to open up to hope is what blocks trust, and blocked trust is the reason for blighted dreams.
Rita Mae Brown
Ralph Waldo Emerson
When a family is free of abuse and oppression, it can be the place where we share our deepest secrets and stand the most exposed, a place where we learn to feel distinct without being “better,” and sacrifice for others without losing ourselves.

Anyone who knows me has heard me brag about Timothy, our grandson who has been training as a Marine in Hawaii and California.

A Position Of EmpowermentSubmitted by Michael Bruno
This story of empowerment came from my involvement in Boy Scouts. As a young Tenderfoot scout, I really had no idea what I was doing in the troop, and just followed along with what the older boys, whom I looked up to, did. I had never been placed in a position where someone else vested their trust in me. Yet, out...

Charles CSubmitted by Stephen McLeod
My hero is my Grandfather. He was by far the sweetest man I have ever known, and would do anything to protect his family.

My mom and my dad have always been there for me, even during times when nothing was wrong. My dad proudly serves his country while providing for our family, and that to me is admirable in itself. My mom and dad want to help me everyday no matter what is going on, and that is why they are my heroes.

Trust is earned over time and not purchased. Once it is earned it can be difficult to lose.
Charlie Kropp, Illinois

Josh, SLC, UT
Trust is hard to regain in a relationship that has failed. But trust is the number one most important quality of a relationship, and if it cannot be repaired, the relationship will fall apart again.
Just like a trust fall. You have to know how to trust the person that will catch you when you fall backwards. You are relying on them for their support.

Believe in someone and know that they can do it.
