Commitment is what

transforms a promise into reality.

It is the words that speak

boldly of your intentions.

And the actions which speak

louder than the words.

It is making the time

when there is none.

Coming through time

after time after time,

year after year after year.

Commitment is the stuff

character is made of;

the power to change

the face of things.

It is the daily triumph

of integrity over skepticism.

-Abraham Lincoln
