Letter: Save lives by teaching kids to respect others

Save lives by teaching kids to respect others

Police brutality – that is all we hear. There should never be abuse of power, from our president on down. Did anyone ever think that people in authority or just the general populace should be treated with respect?

Saving lives starts at home. Start by raising your children in the manner that America would be proud. Teach them to be respectful and kind to all living things. Don’t teach them to disrespect, rob, beat and murder people. Don’t burn puppies, don’t kick cats, don’t mug people and don’t spit on a cop. Treat people like you want to be treated. This would save more lives than protesting and rioting. Try respect first and see if that works. I’ll bet it will.
