Loyalty-...Something I  adhear to
Experience-...Something I have gained plenty of
Leadership-...Something I have the ability to do if asked

Justice-...Something I feel I have been shown
Compassion-...Something my heart is filled with
Kindness-...Something I feel could be my middle name
Morality-...Something I need to look for
Honesty-...Something I am often confused by
Meditation-...Something I may do to much of
Reverence-...Something I feel that I have 
Reflection-...Something I do often
Moderation-...Something I constatly struggled with
Respect-...I know so much about,and feel the world needs to learn
Cheerfulness-...Something that is always in my heart
