Letter: Do not let respect disappear from society

Remember when we showed respect for the United States flag?

Remember when we showed respect for the president of the United States of America?

Remember when we showed respect for our armed forces?

Remember when we showed respect for our law enforcement?

Remember when we had respect for news media? Remember when we could listen to the news media and feel we were receiving true news not a certain view?

Remember when children were taught to respect their parents?

Remember when we taught our children to respect their teachers?

Remember when we respected the privacy of our neighbors and others?

Remember when we could not be more proud of the fact we were called Americans?

Perhaps respect is the glue that helped bond us as the best country in the world. Do your part, our children are watching and listening. Don’t let respect disappear.
