Respect. This term refers to the action of considering someone’s feelings or opinions about someone or something and how you treat them. Respect comes in many ways. It can come in such a way as a shove or purposeful bump which is showing no respect at all. Or it can come as a glare or hard stare which is also disrespectful. More often than not it can also come as a simple “thank you” or “please” which would be very respectful. Respect is a quality that everybody has and some misuse it occasionally. There are so many forms of respect that are used every second of the day that they simply amount to so much that the mind cannot conceive. We use every form that can possibly be identified. Some are closely related. There are also many terms used in the place of respect. One such would be the word “consideration”. Another is used in a famous and familiar Revolutionary War figure title named Paul “Revere”. Once more there is the word “regard”. Some terms are not used as much as a majority of them.
Sadly, in these lacking times, respect is not exercised as much as prior. But some use it, thankfully, many a time. Then again some use it exhaustfully more than others. And more so it is not used enough. I accept that respect is not viewed as a word that many at this school and numerous others, use so much. Many parents, not all but various others, have fallen away from the truth that previous parents from some years ago taught their children the important attribute of respect. Parents during these times do not wish to teach the “outdated”, as some conceivers of children would say, aspect of respect. I predict that this would the basis for the reason that many children do not consider using respect or any other alternative aspect. But I thank God that there are few other majorities that know and enjoy properly utilizing the pleasant and friendly trait of respect.
