When we were young we had to learn to respect everyone. However, in this day and age it is practically non existentent.  I saw a video on Facebook that pointed this out and I just had to write about it because it was really important.  One day the principal of a school called into the office a young girl.  Also in his office was a fellow student with his parents.  He had his secretary call the girl’s mother who did not answer the phone for forty-five minutes. By the time she did he was livid.  She explained to him that she was a surgical nurse and was stitching up a seven year old’s face who had been hit with a piece of metal. The principal insisted that she come to the school immediately. She asked if her daughter was in trouble and he refused to answer. She left her job and rushed to the school. Upon entering the office the principal immediately complained about not being able to reach her for forty-five minutes as well as the parents of the student, who was a boy, complained as well.  She asked what the problem was and she was told that her daughter punched the boy in the face. Rather than continue to listen to the boy, his parents and the principal she asked her daughter. The girl said that the boy kept snapping her bra and would not quit so she finally punched him in the face.  As the three adults continued to repremand the mother, she told them all to be quiet. She told them that the boy had apprently never learned to respect females and had not right to keep snapping her bra. The mother said that the boy was basically harrassing her daughter. Her daughter had asked and when he refused he simply continued. She further stated that neither the principal or the boy’s parents showed any respect for her daughter and her.  She then announced that she was going to the superintendent and to an attorney about this and took her daughter and walked out. The superintendent was furious as he recognized that the lack of respect from the male student was not only inappropriate but harrassment. I would have loved to see the outcome of this situation as respect of others should be a priority in all of our lives regardless of age, don’t you agree?
