Think of a time when you or someone you know was treated disrespectfully. How did you feel? Hurt? Angry? Wondering why? Possibly feeling betrayed by the one who 'did it' ? Bottom line, being treated in a disrespectful way doesn't feel good.
So, what can you do about being treated disrespectfully? Given none of us can control what other people do but rather only what we ourselves can do to promote respectfulness, now there's a simple way that you and I and, literally, everyone can use to make respectful choices. Think of the new Serenity Prayer which is more empowering than the original prayer as a guide to follow when tempted to change others: God, grant me the serenity to accept the people in our world that I cannot change, the courage to change the one person I can, and the wisdom to know it's ME!

To learn how you can prevent unkind and disrespectful behavior, Local Choices for Global Respect provides workshops in which adults, teenagers, and children learn an easy-to-use way to be respectful to others by the choices they make. Providing these workshops is the first purpose of my non-profit, Local Choices for Global Respect.
Next, consider the benefit of good-hearted people like yourself and others being united mentally with others in our diverse communities by each person's internal personal commitment to promote respectfulness and prevent abuse, violence, or any kind of disrespectful behavior. This is the second purpose of my non-profit which is to promote a CAREolution.
Opposite of a revolution where groups revolt against one another, this 'Think Of All' CAREolution promotes respect across cultures, communities, companies. The respectfulness that you want is possible when each of us all 'do our part' and we need your participation in this team effort to growing this CAREolution.
You as well as every adult, teenager, and child can participate by your commitment to be respectful to others and, in essence, do no harm. This process provides an easy way for everyone to make respectful choices and includes tangible 'reminder' tools. It also serves as a guide to use as a 'standard' for respectful behavior that is somewhat similar to the 'standard' or measurement that exists for academic behavior of A, B, C, D.
By each of us doing our part, we can each contribute to this CAREolution by starting first in our homes, then demonstrating respect in our diverse neighborhoods, schools, and workplaces. To learn how you can join our CAREolution, call 949-378-4126 or send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you today.....
Alone, we can do so little; together, we can do so much...when we choose to 'ThinkOfAll'
