    ...

    I do think we all should.  I think that showing a lack of respect just means you think you're a better human being than me, and it also means that you're close-minded and maybe even judgmental.   I respect every single person I meet and I deserve the same amount...

    Wanna Know What's Sad

    It's sad that we have to create groups like this in the first place. I know the world can't be a perfect place, that's not even possible, but the respect thing could actually be achieved with just a bit of effort on the part everyone. It should be instilled in all of us and...

    Don't Know If It Will Ever Happen

    I wish it would happen. I was told what and how to think as a child (who was good, who was bad) and today I can't do that. If I did/tried, I would only be lying to myself. I have come into contact with so many people in my life. They vary among many different aspects from age...
