A Respectful Poem

“Let parents bequeath to their children not riches, but the spirit of reverence.” – Plato

In Celebration of the Week of Respect and Anti-bullying

“Respect builds the character and defines who we are”
If we practice it together every day we will go very far
Respect defines us as human beings
We learn it by example and by seeing
Others put to practice the Golden Rule
Children need to know this is cool.
Respect is a lifelong tool.

A week, a month may create some awareness
But to build it strong and infuse it our hearts
will not allow us to pull apart

Respect is not a season; it is a way of life
Let’s respect one another and get rid of the strife
The world will certainly be a better place
When we stand as one and the hate erase.
