Respect is indicative of understanding, either for another person, place or thing. Lack of understanding may cause actions of disrespect. We must distinguish respect from tolerance as tolerance is not a positive emotion. An example ~~ tolerating a religion is not respecting it. Toleration is more compatible with Contempt. Again another negative connotation.
In this blog, one of my goals is to create a unity among so many cultures races and creeds. Can it be done? Absolutely! When we all understand that we came from the same father, we breathe the same air we bleed the same color and we want the same thing! UNITY AND PEACE in the world.
