Respect Yourself and Others. Day 26, A Season for Non-Violence

From 64 Days of Non-Violence, today’s theme is Respect.

Gandhi taught, “Language is an exact reflection of the character and growth of its speakers.” Today, respect yourself and others be choosing not to use any profanity or “put downs.”

For a little humor from the 80’s, here’s a song with lyrics included below that goes with the theme for the day:

If you disrespect everybody
That you run into
How in the world do you think
Anybody sposed to respect you
If you dont give a heck about
The man with a bible in his hand
Just get out the way and let
The gentleman do his thing

Youre the kind of gentleman
That wants everything their way
Take the sheet off yur face boy
Its a brand new day

Chorus
Respect yourself
Respect yourself
If you dont respect yourself
Aint nobody gonna give a good
Ca-hoot na na na oh oh
Respect yourself

If youre walking around thinking
That the world owes you something
Cause youre here
Youre going out the world backward
Like you did when you first came here
Keep talking about the president
Wont stop air pollution
Put your hand over your mouth
When you cough
Thatll help the solution

You cuss around women folk
You dont even know their name
Then youre dumb enough to think
That it makes you a big ol man

Chorus
Respect yourself
Respect yourself
If you dont respect yourself
Aint nobody gonna give a good
Ca-hoot na na na oh oh
Respect yourself
