Hi, this story is about my school janitor who is always working around my school no matter what the weather or if he's sick. He still comes to work; even when we have a snow day or it's a holiday. He still shows up. But people at my school really don't understand just how much he does for my school and church! His wife died about three years ago, yet he still comes. Someone stole his wife's Bible he had, and it contained all her important papers. He'll probably never see it again, but I told him I'd try my hardest to find it for him. His job involves cleaning up after us kids, putting out the lunch tables for lunch, sweeping the floor, shoveling snow in the winter, and helping with checking in the bus attendance at our church. He's really a great person. He even helps me with my homework. Plus when he gets hurt at work, we try to get him to take a break and go to the doctor, but he says he doesn't want to leave his job! And that's the story of Mr. C. my janitor.

We come from different countries with different beliefs, traditions and cultures but this is the thing that makes the world so wonderful. We should embrace our differences, learn how to be tolerant towards one another and respect each other.

When we all learn to respect and appreciate each other for our likenesses as well as differences, I suspect wars will become obsolete.

I agree that the concept of treating others as you would be treated is a marvelous idea, and should be implemented whenever possible. I also agree that healthy relationships between people must have a foundation of respect.

A definite requirement, mutual respect, equality! We should regard not only our own virtues and qualities but also those of others! There are steps people as individuals can start to implement in their lives to make the difference and it begins with a decsion and seeing that decision through thick thin!

As I therapist in training, working with teenagers I believe before I can even begin to help them. They have to know that I respect them. Respect is a powerful concepts. Treating others the way you want to be treated is a daily ritual of mine.
