Respect--100 Words



You remember the old song? Aretha sang about it. Maybe better than anyone else. She reminded us that all people are due respect. Honor. Dignity.

All people.


The up-and-in. The down-and-out.

The gorgeous. The not-so-gorgeous.

Baseball pioneer and great Jackie Robinson said, “I’m not concerned with your liking or disliking me…All I ask is that you respect me as a human being.”

Why don’t you re-read what Jackie said.

I echo his words. That’s really all I ask from others.

You may or may not like me. That’s fine.

But, you can respect me as a person.
