Kindness is showing you care, doing some good to make life better for others. Be thoughtful about people’s needs. Show love and compassion to someone who is sad or needs your help.

When you are tempted to be cruel, to criticize or tease, decide to be kind instead.

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.

    These are perfect. It’s all about the habits. If you make these things into habits then you know real changes for the positive can happen. I recommend How Love Wins by Doug Carnine (feedkindness.com). This book has changed my daily lifestyle and I love the ways I have become more kind and it’s been a great change!
