In today's society, respect for other people is a principle that is rare.
Children are rude to the parents and teachers; they bully their peers; and some have no regard for the property of other's.
But this bad behavior can be observed in adults as well.
Yes, some adults are just as disrespectful - They have no qualms about calling a police officer a "pig"; they curse the hat off their neighbor in front of their children; they make fun of people who are overweight, mentally handicapped and people who are less fortunate financially.
We need to step back and rediscover a few lost principles, courtesy and respect being the most important.
Take a moment to look at yourself: Are you respectful? Are you a good role model for the next generation?
