while i'm on a roll

Respect.

Not just Aretha deserves it. Why does it seem that people have lost respect for each other, as well as themselves? Respect covers a lot of ground. How you interact with other living beings, how you walk on the earth and see the world around you. How you treat yourself.

From simple observation, this basic tenet instilled by parents on their children at a tender age seems to have gone the way of the record player. Some people still have one and some people have no idea what it is.

Ralph Waldo Emerson said “Men are respectable only as they respect.” A backbone of my beliefs are summed up by the rule of three - what you put out there comes back to you threefold. More clearly stated “Treat others as you want them to treat you because what goes around, comes around.”

Is there any more to say?
