Respect is a very important value in my life. Especially manners. Please and Thank you are words that can make a difference in someone's day. One day a while ago when I was about ten years old my mom and I were at Publix. On this particular day they had various samples of many foods out. Being ten I wanted to try every sample. At one station an older woman, probably in her 60's, was distributing cereal samples. I watched as many people breezed by and took their samples. I walked up to the sample tray and asked "May I have one please?" She kindly gave me one and I responded "Thank you." The sales associate told me that I was the first person to tell her thank you all day and that it had made her day. It made me happy knowing that I had made someone else happy. All it took was two words. I still remember that day clearly, seven years later. Respect makes a difference in lives.
