slide8
Dependability and

Responsibility

slide9
Within the community, dependability is being there for others through all the times of their lives, a steady influence that makes tomorrow a welcome event; and responsibility means showing and encouraging a personal commitment to each task.

Clifton Taulbert

slide12
Within the community, friendship is the habit that binds people together when they take pleasure in each other’s company, listen, laugh, and share good times and bad.

Clifton Taulbert

slide15
Within the community, brotherhood is the habit that reaches beyond comfortable relationships to extend a welcome to those who may be different from yourself.

Clifton Taulbert

slide18
Within the community, high expectations involve believing that others can be successful, telling them so, and praising their accomplishments.

slide21
Within the community, courage is standing up and doing the right thing, speaking out on behalf of others, and making a commitment to excellence in the face of adversity or the absence of support.

Clifton Taulbert

slide24
Within the community, hope is believing in tomorrow – because you have learned to see with your heart.

slide28
The Habits cannot be passed along like a collection of footballs. What we are passing along are the strengths of our lives, which we embrace and make clear through daily living.
  • The will of ordinary folk working together as my elders did, remain the only force that can ensure that good community exists.
