Teaching our kids

My parents worked very hard when I was growing up. They are great people, fair people. I always respected them for that.

As I watch my kids, who are now 19 and 17, I realize that those are the same qualities I’ve tried to teach them. Be fair to people, but always stand up for what you believe in. Don’t follow the crowd if they don’t truly represent your thoughts.

Work hard and be proud of the job you are doing, and no matter what that job is, do it to the best of your ability.

Never look down on someone because of race, orientation or because they may not be as well off as you. Respect them because they are working, trying to make a better life for themselves.

Respect the people that deserve it, the ones that have earned it, and fight with everything you have against the people that don’t.

Those are my kids.
