The Big Picture … Respect Values … Disrespect Devalues … and Even Kills

Prejudice manifests fear and hate anywhere and everywhere in the world, so it doesn’t what walls are built … instead what needs to be built is everyone’s ability to live and let live peacefully …to value every life simply for being a life … not because we like or accept or approve of others … because we don’t have to … anymore than anyone else has to like or accept or approve us. This is the only way we will all be safe. Interestingly enough it is also the most efficient and effective tool, making it the most logical, practical, and compassionate solution to terrorism and many other challenges our world faces.

When One’s SELF WORTH Is Dependent On …

When one’s self worth is dependent on the opinions of others, the roller coaster ride can be scary, debilitating, and even deadly.

WHAT EVERY “ONE” WANTS … IS TO BE SEEN … ESPECIALLY

People want to be seen, but people with Alzheimer’s, dementia or any disease, want to be seen too … but not for their disease … for the person they are beneath the symptoms of their affliction.

Because of my direct involvement as my Dad’s primary representative, contact, liaison, and advocate, I am discovering the labels “Combative and aggressive” are attached especially attached to people with Alzheimer’s and dementia … but isn’t this wrong thinking … especially in the minds who are supposed to be the healthcare professionals? Isn’t it the diseases themselves that rob people not only of their ability to remember, but also of being able to manage their emotional responses to what they perceive as a threat … or even their frustration and anger in their cognitively-clear moments?

An early morning call yesterday revealed the consequences Dad has had to pay for the medication used to “incapacitate” him … that is preventing him from the simple act of getting out of bed on his own … the call informing us he had broken his hip or leg … which led to an all day ordeal that finally resulted in surgery last night and the words “combative” being applied to his state this morning.

Shocked, stunned, and astounded are words that continue to reverberate throughout my being as I journey this tortuous path with my Dad … but then, when I pull back with time to reflect, the state of being shocked, stunned, and astounded are replaced with the knowledge I already know … in a world and healthcare system still driven by dollars first rather than respect for life, I should not be surprised by any of what I see and hear plus observe what Dad is experiencing.

His warrior spirit fights with all its might and though I do not know how long his war with his humanity will last, I pray for the means to continue to serve as his support and for the “Connecting the Dots … with The RESPECT PRINCIPLE” work that will not just create an income source for me, but will help positively change the views we have about each other … so we can be more compassionate … and innovative in finding the best ways to help each other as we each face our own unique challenges in this life … respectfully.

MIXED MESSAGES … FREE SPEECH … without a High RESPECT LEVEL …

Based on Connecting the Dots … with The RESPECT PRINCIPLE’S RESPECT SCALE, we can “connect the dots” with a fresh perspective to see how “free speech,” without a high enough Respect Level, is often used for oppression and in reality, is used as a violent act of aggression … sometimes even as a precursor to physical violence.

Making fun of people has consequences … especially people already showing signs of low Respect Levels themselves because of their history, beliefs, and experience plus don’t share our western cultural approval of making fun of people for the fun of it … or for any other reason … adds fuel to always-burning embers … and as we have seen, it only takes one or two who feel maligned and hurt to burst at the seams and unleash the havoc they did in Paris last week … or the havoc unleashed at work places and schools.

Standing up for free speech is vital … yet so is standing up for how free speech is used to hurt and harm rather than to promote if not understanding, at least tolerance and peace.

The solidarity we need is for valuing … respecting all life and developing new methods of communication and cross-cultural relations that is logical, practical … and compassionate … for everyone … particularly for those hurting the most … those most likely to lash out … it is the only way we will peacefully diminish violence of any kind … globally.
