RESPECT - This is a word that carries so much weight. It not only affects you but everyone around you. By practicing it, this shows others who you really are and by experiencing it, this shows you the kind of person you are dealing with.
In this day and age, to see someone help another person cross the street, or open a door for a stranger, or just given a passersby a friendly smile is seldom seen. As a teacher I question the quality of the students. It do not question their academic ability, but I question them knowing right from wrong, doing what is right and behaving in an appropriate manner. By practicing respect it helps mold students and children in wholesome adult. It helps them appreciate others and show others’ that they value their presence.
By showing respect it separates us from the rest of the world. Respect who you are and respect everyone’s uniqueness. Show respect and others will respect you.
