How low have we fallen in our modern advanced culture? Is
there anything lower than having disrespect for our president? It is even more
appalling when the disrespect comes from elected leaders? Foul language and
four letter words have become an acceptable way to win elections. It is
disturbing that large numbers in our USA approve of such demeaning behavior. It
is more disturbing that the larger silent majority allows it to happen. I, who
know better and do not do it, am guilty as well (Jam.4:17).

I was brought up with this principle, “What a person sows
that shall he or she also reap” (Gal.6:7). I remember a fifteen year old
calling his father “dumb.” I was present when his son called him worse than
being “dumb.” “The Lord your God has commanded you: Honor your father and your
mother, so that you may live long and that it may go well with you in the land
that the Lord your God is giving you” (Deut.5:16). Respect begins at home and
in school. King David wrote, “Come, my children, listen to me; I will teach you
the fear of the Lord. Whoever of you loves life and desires to see many good
days, keep your tongue from evil and your lips from speaking lies”
