Respect? Manners? Morals? Do we still have them?
With the current climate in our world and the recent breaking news stories of inappropriate sexual behavior in all industries across the nation, you would think that we live in a world without rules, respect, manners or morals.
Reading through the headlines it is truly evident that respect and manners have been pushed to the side. It is only when horrible behavior is brought to the mass media do we have the opportunity to see something we are aware of on a small scale in high definition, morning and night and on every platform.
Is our culture so unattached and disconnected that we have forgotten about moral upbringing or human decency? What has happened?
Certain components of our modern existence threaten the development and enforcement of these rules which have helped hold our communities together. As we have evolved it is understandable that so has the perception of what is considered “acceptable behavior”.
Yes, we have been liberated from appalling laws and useless rules of the past, but now we are faced with the repercussions of our progression. Without focused cultivation of teaching and enforcing respect and equality within our workplace, schools, homes, and communities, the civility born of etiquette could indeed become a thing of the past. It is only when enough people stand together and decide that enough is enough and that it is time for a change that something can be done.
Please stand with us in our battle to help instill the traits that make our society kind and compassionate human beings.
