Respect is a pretty big word! It’s been around for centuries, and in its truest form, presents itself in the absence of judgment. Respect leaves behind wrath and punishment and brings along compassion and understanding.
Those who claim to respect others can only do so if they first pay the price of self-introspection and honor for those who are different, from another country, another race, culture, or creed.
Not everyone is meant to be friends, best friends, or even associates. Respect, however, is a mandatory consideration for others’ wishes, rights, or traditions. It’s doesn’t always mirror yours, but as long as it doesn’t leave victims in its wake, at the least, concede deference in the kindest way possible.
Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor.
Respect shows homage to those you won’t ever get to know while understanding that the manifestation of human intellectual achievement reaches its pinnacle when you respect others’ valuable cultures as much as you do your own.
Show yourself in all respects to be a model of good works, and in your teaching show integrity, dignity.
