We all deserve respect.
Labeling and teasing. Intruding in other people personal private business is still a major problem this country.
It has in many ways become worse than in past because it can end in tragedy.
The fact that teenagers and pre teens can get access to guns and other weopons and use it in revenge of other children who are teasing or labeling them. All of the school shooting incidents resulted in situations where one student felt so abused and angry that used deadly force to retaliate. This is a continuing result of people placing foolish labels on another person to make themselves feel stronger. That is a false sense of strength. It is weakness and ignorance.
Everyone should be judged by the content of their character and not by their physical appearance. People should be respected for who they are and treated with the highest regard.
The idea of how a person looks or the clothes they wear should never enhance or further unneccessary abuse people place on others. Back in the 1970s when I was in high in high school foolish behavior of the nature may have resulted in arguments ir fit fights. In recent years these same situations could result in tragic violence. There are to many incidents violence by young people are because of lack of respect. A girl rejects a boy because he part of the so called crowd or his looks aren't to her liking. That type of cruel reject can result in a violent reaction. When a person is abused and verbally and taunted because of their appearance is wrong. The low self-esteem sets in a person becomes indifferent and distant.
Violence is just around the corner because in my opinion parents, school administrators, and churches express the issue of respect with stronger emphasis. Respect may come up after the fact. After a tragedy respect is stated, but it needs to be expressed before and during all situations that involve human relationships. There is a need for the government to set an example by repecting each other and solving problems instead pointing fingers and criticizing people that don't share your opinion. To often the the leaders in this country set a poor example with their partism bickering and fightng like a bunch of ignorant fools. When adults behave like fools it sets poor standards for young people to follow. It is clear the leadership in this country is to blame for a great deal of the lack of respect that exist in the country.
Conservatives against liberals. Foolish labels and marginalization. Using private behavior to destroy another person's career. The leaders in this country acting like mindless ignorant fools. All ludricis stereo-types and unfair labels are perpectuated by the leadership in this country who fail to acknowledge they have an definitive influence on how young people behave and relate to each other.
It all comes down to total respect for all regardless how that look or how what their views. There should be respect for all.
