This story is about RESPECT
Submitted by Katrina Sue 12 months ago.
I will always remember this one girl that was in all of my 7th grade classes. She was very quiet, never back-talked anyone, always greeted the staff at our school, never interrupted the teachers like any other kid in the school. All my friends thought she was just weird, but I watched her for a while and she was always so polite. All the kids at my school were always rude not listening to the staff, so one day, the day I will always remember, I finally had the guts to ask her why she wasn't like the rest of us and what she told me changed the way I acted. When I asked her she told me,"If you ever want to be respected in life, you'll have to respect others and by others I mean not just your friends."
After she said that I started respecting others more and telling other people what I was told.
Have something to say? Tell us what you think.
|Dear Katrina Sue , She was right about respect! It was the family value we always had and have today.In my teaching career , respect, responsibility, and kindness were the values that I wanted my primary children to have. Keep respect in your heart!Judy G.|
