We seldom say I love you, when we know that we do. So why is it so hard?
Instead we say it with a card, trying to protect the heart, by keeping it in the dark. If you can't say it,then try and show it, by giving something from Amazon.com,because Simple things, sometime mean the most.

A BROKEN LANGUISH
SPEAK NO ENGLISH
A BROKEN LANGUISH
You have heard, in order to receive respect, you have to
give it.But how can one give what he or
she has not been taught?How does a five
year old know that he or she is to respect their elders, who have earned it
long before they were born, if there is no one in the home to teach them?
We use to greet a person with the salutation, "Hello,
how are you," and the reply wouldbe, "Hello, I'm fine, thank you and how are you?"
Today, the hello has been replaced with an insincere faded smile or just,
"How are you?" "I'm fine, thanks and you," with no
reply, today asking a person how they are doing holds no meaning, because no
one really cares to know like so long ago, when people had time or made time to
We use to say, "Thank you," to express our
appreciation and could expect, "You're welcome," with a genuine
smile, because it was a give and take experience. The giver enjoyed giving or
doing it and the receiver appreciated their gesture. Today thank you are
seldom spoken and if one does remember the words and find themselves using
them, they are left to wonder if they are welcome because that part of the
dialogue might be skipped.
When is the last time that you have heard the words
"please" or "excuse me" come from the mouth of the youth? To simply covering
one's mouth when coughing or yawning. This is what today's culture has
evolved into and is known as a disrespectful society that no longer displays or
uses common manners. Like refraining from using languishes that would be
viewed as not proper in front of or around children or in the present of one's
Aretha Franklin sung the song about RESPECT, sighting, find
out what it means to me as she spelled the word out. It doesn't matter
how old you are, your race, gender or religious back ground, everyone deserves
it. To the Staple Singers demanding the same attributes, Respect yourself in
1971. The song was written by Stax Records singer Luther Ingram and Stax
house songwriter Mack Rice. Ingram, who was frustrated with the state of
the world at the time, told Rice, "Black folk need to learn to respect
themselves." Rice liked the comment so much so that he built a
funk groove around it, and then gave the song to the Staples, who were also
signed to Stax. It’s 2015 and we still haven't learned to respect each
other, for they also say actions speak louder than our words.
From one black person to another, you can address him or
her, young or old today with hello and they look at you as though you are out
of your mind or the words are foreign.
With the absence of respect leads to the lost of morals, for
without morals there's no need for a conscious, because you no longer have the
ability to distinguish between what is right or wrong.
Maybe if we showed each other a bit of respect and take the
time to really listen to each other, we would be well equip to take a moral
stand when it comes to making a conscious decision when taking a life without
giving it a single thought. Just maybe there wouldn't be so many senseless
