Respect, the song sung by Aretha Fanklin loves to be belted out by all. But when I think of respect, I think of the most common rule known by man, the Golden Rule. For those that don’t know the Golden Rule is “Treat others as you would want to be treated.” There are many variations to this rule, but they all have the same meaning in that you respect those around you with the same respect you wish to be shown.

I consider respect to be one of the most important parts of being a man in your daily life. If you do not show respect not only to yourself but in relationships how can your peers respect you. From a young age we learn from our parents what is right and what is wrong. And the simple Golden Rule our parents try to teach us at a very young age. I remember fighting with my younger brothers and my parents would bring up the golden rule readily.  It is just a simple rule that can do wonders for everyone if we all followed it.

Men must show respect to women in all every aspect. Too often have I seen women have their feelings hurt from something stupid done by one of my guy friends. Respect is the most simplest way to show love for your partner. Women shouldn’t settle for anything less than the utmost respect from a man in a relationship.  With respect comes trust and that should never be taken for granted.

The Apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. I knew your father 1946-47 just after the war. He was a perfect gentleman in everyway. I have two wonderful sons
Ted is a lawyer for New York Life and the father of two Danielle and Andrew.
David lives in Palo Alto he and Lucy have three children Eben, Grace and Abigail.
David works for Cisco as a computer scientist. My sons are gentlemen and treat their familes and myself with great respect. You seem like a very fine person and I admire what you are doing on line. Keep up the good work. God bless you and your family. Alice

Alice I appreciate the comment very much. My Grandpa was the perfect role model for us and his example can now be seen in my father. I thought the importance of being a man in society was lacking very much so in society today. Sounds like you have a wonderful family to be proud of.
God Bless you,
