The concept of honour was very important the Ancient Welsh and the Welsh ideals of honour contained within the tales of King Arthur helped to inspire the Medieval Age of Chivalry. We practice honour by being honest and trustworthy, by serving our community selflessly and by respecting the views of others.
To be wise and prudent in all that we do, this is key to our mission. If we are to educate others, we must first educate ourselves and this we must do obsessively. A wealth of knowledge combined with an open but fair mind are the ingredients of true Wisdom.
With wisdom in our minds, we can embrace the courage in our hearts and use this to push us forward in pursuit of our goals. One must be courageous enough to speak for what's right and we at RDA avoid any fear to express ourselves. If we wish to preserve a fair and accurate representation of Welsh history and its legacy, we must be brave enough to do so.
The story of Wales has often been an epic struggle for Independence and we stay true to this spirit by staying true to ourselves. Being independent is defined as exercising one's own decisions, free from the influence or manipulation of others. Be independent enough to seek your own answers to questions, from your own opinions and be your own Individual.
To best express ourselves and to offer the most colourful vision of Welsh culture, it's necessary to embrace our creative urges. Never be afraid to offer up new ideas or to explore one's own imagination. We must be as innovative as possible if we are to inspire a new generation of Welsh-Americans.
Last and most importantly, pursue excellence in all that you do is our chief virtue. When we set our mind to serving Welsh-America, we do so with the goal of success in our minds. We do not work towards our goals haphazardly as we are not serving a haphazard mission. Welsh-America deserves our most excellent effort.
