Discovering Respect on Memorial Day.

giphy[1]As Memorial Day approached, my thoughts keep drifting to the significance and meaning of the word Respect. We learn the basic social guidelines and behaviors of respect as children.The dictionary definition is to demonstrate a high regard for someone or something. Respect is a behavior that  defines how we treat  other people.Respect is a two way street and a learned response.We have to give Respect to  receive Respect.Memorial Day is our Nation’s way of  remembering and Respecting all who died during active military service to our Country. It is also an opportunity for us to open our hearts to those they have left behind.On this Memorial Day as our Nation faces it’s greatest challenge. Let us all embrace Respect  as the force that unites us in our battle to defeat the pandemic.Submitted with Respect for all by Margie’s Daughter…..
