Respect is something everyone needs

November 20, 2018

My great-grandson, Jareth, is 10 years old and in the fourth grade at Santa Niño Regional Catholic School. I would like to share an excerpt from his recent paper titled, “Respect.”

“Respect — it’s something everyone needs. It’s hard to give and get because the world isn’t the way you want it to be … Nobody’s perfect, nobody is always good; you can’t get what you want all the time, and respect is one of those things. But you can control yourself and show some respect. Respect is something that’s always a good thing to show to someone, either in a restaurant … or even at your house. As I said, respect is something you and I need.”

Sore loser

Republican congressional candidate Yvette Herrell is a sore loser (“Herrell seeks to impound 8,000 ballots,” Nov. 14). First, she claimed victory on election night based on a “roughly 2,000” vote lead over her Democratic opponent, Xochitl Torres Small. Second, she went on the program “Fox and Friends” on Nov. 10 and claimed that the 8,000 votes which later gave the real victory to Torres Small “showed up out of nowhere.”

Herrell should apologize to the Secretary of State, the clerk, the voting commission, and all the vote counters for going on national television to imply that she only lost through voter fraud. Donald Trump will love that claim. He may give Herrell some minor job at the White House, and it may be all of six months before he fires her.

Wanting to apologize

Would someone please establish a website where we can go and sign a letter of apology to the latest foreign victim of our irresponsible little boy president? Please?
