Virtue of the Week: Justice

Practicing justice is being fair. It is solving problems so everyone wins.

You don’t prejudge. You see people as individuals. You don’t accept it when some-one acts like a bully, cheats or lies. Being a champion for justice takes courage. Sometimes when you stand for justice, you stand alone.

You are practicing justice when you,

• Treat everyone fairly
• Think for yourself and refuse to prejudge
• Avoid gossip and backbiting
• Own your mistakes and fix them
• Protect people’s rights, including your own
• Solve problems so everyone wins

Affirmation:

I act with justice. I stand up for the rights of others and myself. I have no need to pre-tend or defend. I choose to make amends.

The Source supports the Virtues Project, an international initiative focused on building peaceful and caring communities. We will publish one of the virtues developed by the project each week.

The Virtues Project is an international initiative focused on building peaceful and caring communities aligned to 52 virtues – such as “compassion,” “integrity,” “respect.” The Virtues Project promotes community capacity-building to teach positive behaviors and attitudes and contribute to healthy and supportive environments across sectors. This is an initiative originated with a work group of Early Childhood Advisory Committee of the Children and Families Council and is moving forward with support from the Community Foundation of the Virgin Islands. We are working in collaboration with the Department of Education to infuse V.I. culture into the messages and to implement The Virtues Project in the public schools. The goal is to engage the community in discussion and awareness of the “Virtue of the Week” in schools, child care settings, home, and the workplace through the media, religious institutions, schools and centers, government agencies, and business organizations.
