Blogger: Respect should be a given

• Oct 31, 2017 at 5:00 PM

Many of us learned in kindergarten to treat others as we would like to be treated, otherwise known as “The Golden Rule.”

Cyndi Casemier of C2C Gallery in downtown Grand Haven focuses on that universal rule in her latest blog post.

“One of C2C Gallery’s core values is to treat everyone with respect,” she wrote. “You say, ‘Well, of course.’ Sadly, this is not something that happens automatically in our world.”

Treating people with respect should simply be part of the fabric of our society, Casemier says. It’s not something we should have to write down or tattoo to our forearm to remember.

“It’s just the right thing to do,” she wrote. “We are all humans. ... We’re all in this together and, for the most part, people are good and want good things for society. What’s sad is how surprised people are to see this in practice. That’s because we live in a world where people say and do very disrespectful things to one another on social media and in real life.”
