This I believe…… Respect is a meaningful word for us. Most people go through life and always hear about the word respect, but they don’t know what it means. Respect is the esteem for or a sense of the worth or ex
This post is very true, and I agree that respect and karma go hand and hand somewhat. My favorite part was when you said. ‘Although I am respectful to others I still don’t always get respected back, but I can’t let that discourage me; it makes me want to give more to influence people to be respectful.’ It is inspiring to see you not be disrespectful just because one person didn’t respect you.
i really like that you decided to right your essay on respect because personally i feel like these newer generations are being raised with the lack of knowledge of what respect is and how much it is needed every day. I see how elder people get on the bus and it’s already packed with young people and not one person gives up there seat that’s sitting in the front. Those seats are specifically for the eldery and disabled and yet people sit there when there are empty seats in the back of the bus. Hopefully your essay goes to many eyes of young people and they learn from it, and realize that respect is something everyone needs to use in their day to day life.
This is a youth-powered social network that was started in 2003 by a group of teachers from local sites of the National Writing Project.
We merged several earlier blogging projects. We have found that there are many advantages to bringing students together in one site that lives beyond any particular class. It's easier for individual students to read and write about their own passions, to connect with other students, comment on each other's work, and create multimedia posts for each other. Further, it's been exciting for us to pool our knowledge about curriculum, connected learning, and digital literacies.
If being part of such a community makes sense to you, we invite you to join us. We welcome all youth and any teacher interested in having students publish online and participate in the give and take of a social network like Youth Voices.
