We all want to be respected but I didn’t even know what that meant until I was in my 20’s! Men that want respect everyday fight over that word, “respect”. When I was in high school my friends and I would talk about our teachers “respecting” us. Looking back, we were the ones disrespecting them the whole time. Strange how time makes you think. When I was arrested for Robbery and Murder it was my teachers that fought the jail administration to allow me to finish high school and graduate; some of those teachers I had disrespected over the years but they believed in me enough to come to the jail everyday, after school released, so I could get my diploma. Whenever you think your teachers don’t care or maybe you feel they don’t notice you, they do! I realize now I didn’t have to get in trouble to get noticed they were there the whole time.
