"Respect is accepting people for who they are,
and treating others with the same care you give others whom you respect.
The way I show respect to others is with manners and with kindness.
It feels to me mature, because you know how to value one another
and show them the respect and kindness they are giving back to you."
~ Karen Razo (Davie County Resident) ~
"Respect is recognizing the needs of others and considering them in all things. Respect is shown to others by treating them in a way you would want to be treated and by putting their needs first.
"Respect feels like love and gratitude.
I like to help the elderly to their vehicle
with groceries - it feels great.
I am always polite to police officers
when I see them...
They deal with enough,
so it feels good to be the first smile
of their day - it makes me happy."
