Respect

Today the picture of Lindsey Stone “being the douchebags that we are” hit the internet big time.  I am apalled at the lack of respect.  I am also apalled at the extremes people are going to beat her down.  This is a classic example of two wrongs don’t make a right.  The same lack of respect for fellow humans went on during this election season.  I am all for standing up for your rights.  Where would we be in this world without people like Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King, Ghandi, Mother Teresa, Abraham Lincoln, the list goes on and on of people who helped shaped our world into what it is now.  That whole Freedom of Speech thing, doesn’t mean you can say someone needs to die or be raped, or whatever.  Even if someone does something appalling and quite disgusting don’t stoop to the level of demeaning your own integrity.  Take the higher road, make your point not by shouting from a soapbox but by persuasion of truthful facts spoken with respect and intregrity.
