Lots of people say lots of things about what is missing today here or there.
What is missing is respect. Respect in word, speech, and deed.
Something my parents taught me by example.
At our very best if we respect each other even in the midst of a difference of opinion, imagine, just imagine what that might do for our discourse? If we continue to disrespect, dehumanize, call each other names and normalize that for no other reason than our differences…well.
I believe that respect is at an astonishingly all time low and I wonder if we can recover.
But I will commit 110% to honorable mutual respect in all ways. And if that makes me a snowflake, how beautiful they are.
