Rudeness abounds today among both adults and children. Please and thank you are anomalies. Greeting someone with a smile or hello is reserved for friends and family, not strangers. Spending more time looking at your phone than the eyes of those you are engaged with in a conversation is acceptable.

And we wonder why

  • relationships are fragmented and shallow.
  • meaningful and reciprocal conversations are a rarity.
  • selfishness and self-absorption are at an all time high.
  • being on time is optional.

Rudeness screams entitlement and superiority! Erecting a barrier between individuals that few dare to cross. Ensuring isolation and loneliness. Destroying unity.

Manners may not seem like a big deal, but they are! Manners

  • honor others.
  • acknowledge others worthiness.
  • express your gratitude for others sacrifice of time, treasure or talent.
  • are a gift of love and compassion.

A high five goes out today to all you who do not need a remedial course in etiquette. You parents who are teaching your children manners. Keep it up! And…


Be a VOICE in the deafening sound of sameness!


Be a VOICE shouting in the silence. Lets love others!
