      Respect is mutual.

      The youth should always respect the older people!

          it can go anywhere,


          Mano po, - that is what we call it, we put the hand of an elderly in our forehead as a sign of respect!

    Unless, for example, the older person is abusing them or encouraging them to do something illegal.

    Respect can always be lost.

      It's worth a try. The only sure thing is that if you don't put the donate button up you definitely will not receive donations.

    Elton John ~ I Guess That's Why They Call It The Blues
    Song Lyrics

    Don't wish it away
    Don't look at it like it's forever
    Between you and me
    I could honestly say
    That things can only get better

    And while I'm away
    Dust out the demons inside
    And it won't be long
    Before you and me run
    To the place in our hearts
    Where we hide

    And I guess that's why
    They call it the blues
    Time on my hands
    Could be time spent with you
    Laughing like children
    Living like lovers
    Rolling like thunder under the covers
    And I guess that's why
    They call it the blues

    Just stare into space
    Picture my face in your hands
    Live for each second
    Without hesitation
    And never forget I'm your man

    Without me girl
    Cry in the night if it helps
    But more than ever I simply love you
    More than I love life itself

    And I guess that's why
    They call it the blues
    Time on my hands
    Could be time spent with you
    Laughing like children
    Living like lovers
    Rolling like thunder under the covers
    And I guess that's why
    They call it the blues

    Wait on me girl
    Cry in the night if it helps
    But more than ever I simply love you
    More than I love life itself

    And I guess that's why
    They call it the blues
    Time on my hands
    Could be time spent with you
    Laughing like children
    Living like lovers
    Rolling like thunder under the covers
    And I guess that's why
    They call it the blues

    To fade.

    Fleetwood Mac ~ Tell Me Lies ~ Tell Me Sweet Little Lies
    Song Lyrics

    If I could turn the page
    The time that I'd be arranged
    Is today to
    ~Close my, close my, close my eyes~
    But I couldn't find a way
    So I'll settle for one day
    To believe in you
    ~Tell me, tell me, tell me lies~


    Tell Me Lies, tell me sweet little lies
    ~Tell Me Lies, Tell me tell me lies~
    Oh no no, you can't disguise
    ~You can't disguise, no you can't disguise~
    Tell me lies, tell me sweet little lies

    And though I'm not making plans
    I hope that you understand
    There's a reason why
    ~Close your, close your eyes~
    No more broken hearts
    We're better off apart
    Let's give it a try
    ~Tell me, tell me lies~

    Tell Me Lies, tell me sweet little lies
    ~Tell Me Lies, Tell me tell me lies~
    Oh no no, you can't disguise
    ~You can't disguise, no you can't disguise~
    Tell me lies, tell me sweet little lies


    If I could turn the page
    The time that I'd be arranged
    Is today to
    ~Close my, close my, close my eyes~
    But I couldn't find a way
    So I'll settle for one day
    To believe in you
    ~Tell me, tell me, tell me lies~

    Tell Me Lies, tell me sweet little lies
    ~Tell Me Lies, Tell me tell me lies~
    Oh no no, you can't disguise
    ~You can't disguise, no you can't disguise~
    Tell me lies, tell me sweet little lies

    To fade.

    NUMBER ONE

    Don McLean ~ Bye-Bye, Miss American Pie
    Song Lyrics

    A long, long time ago...
    I can still remember
    How that music used to make me smile.
    And I knew if I had my chance
    That I could make those people dance
    And, maybe, they’d be happy for a while.

    But February made me shiver
    With every paper I’d deliver.
    Bad news on the doorstep;
    I couldn’t take one more step.

    I can’t remember if I cried
    When I read about his widowed bride,
    But something touched me deep inside
    The day the music died.

    So bye-bye, miss american pie.
    Drove my chevy to the levee,
    But the levee was dry.
    And them good old boys were drinkin’ whiskey and rye
    Singin’, "this’ll be the day that I die.
    "this’ll be the day that I die."

    Did you write the book of love,
    And do you have faith in God above,
    If the Bible tells you so?
    Do you believe in rock ’n roll,
    Can music save your mortal soul,
    And can you teach me how to dance real slow?

    Well, I know that you’re in love with him
    `cause I saw you dancin’ in the gym.
    You both kicked off your shoes.
    Man, I dig those rhythm and blues.

    I was a lonely teenage broncin’ buck
    With a pink carnation and a pickup truck,
    But I knew I was out of luck
    The day the music died.

    I started singin’,
    "bye-bye, miss american pie."
    Drove my chevy to the levee,
    But the levee was dry.
    Them good old boys were drinkin’ whiskey and rye
    And singin’, "this’ll be the day that I die.
    "this’ll be the day that I die."

    Now for ten years we’ve been on our own
    And moss grows fat on a rollin’ stone,
    But that’s not how it used to be.
    When the jester sang for the king and queen,
    In a coat he borrowed from James Dean
    And a voice that came from you and me,

    Oh, and while the king was looking down,
    The jester stole his thorny crown.
    The courtroom was adjourned;
    No verdict was returned.
    And while Lennon read a book of Marx,
    The quartet practiced in the park,
    And we sang dirges in the dark
    The day the music died.

    We were singing,
    "bye-bye, miss american pie."
    Drove my chevy to the levee,
    But the levee was dry.
    Them good old boys were drinkin’ whiskey and rye
    And singin’, "this’ll be the day that I die.
    "this’ll be the day that I die."

    Helter skelter in a summer swelter.
    The birds flew off with a fallout shelter,
    Eight miles high and falling fast.
    It landed foul on the grass.
    The players tried for a forward pass,
    With the jester on the sidelines in a cast.

    Now the half-time air was sweet perfume
    While the sergeants played a marching tune.
    We all got up to dance,
    Oh, but we never got the chance!
    `cause the players tried to take the field;
    The marching band refused to yield.
    Do you recall what was revealed
    The day the music died?

    We started singing,
    "bye-bye, miss american pie."
    Drove my chevy to the levee,
    But the levee was dry.
    Them good old boys were drinkin’ whiskey and rye
    And singin’, "this’ll be the day that I die.
    "this’ll be the day that I die."

    Oh, and there we were all in one place,
    A generation lost in space
    With no time left to start again.
    So come on: jack be nimble, jack be quick!
    Jack flash sat on a candlestick
    Cause fire is the devil’s only friend.

    Oh, and as I watched him on the stage
    My hands were clenched in fists of rage.
    No angel born in hell
    Could break that satan’s spell.
    And as the flames climbed high into the night
    To light the sacrificial rite,
    I saw satan laughing with delight
    The day the music died

    He was singing,
    "bye-bye, miss american pie."
    Drove my chevy to the levee,
    But the levee was dry.
    Them good old boys were drinkin’ whiskey and rye
    And singin’, "this’ll be the day that I die.
    "this’ll be the day that I die."

    I met a girl who sang the blues
    And I asked her for some happy news,
    But she just smiled and turned away.
    I went down to the sacred store
    Where I’d heard the music years before,
    But the man there said the music wouldn’t play.

    And in the streets: the children screamed,
    The lovers cried, and the poets dreamed.
    But not a word was spoken;
    The church bells all were broken.
    And the three men I admire most:
    The father, son, and the holy ghost,
    They caught the last train for the coast
    The day the music died.

    And they were singing,
    "bye-bye, miss american pie."
    Drove my chevy to the levee,
    But the levee was dry.
    And them good old boys were drinkin’ whiskey and rye
    Singin’, "this’ll be the day that I die.
    "this’ll be the day that I die."

    They were singing,
    "bye-bye, miss american pie."
    Drove my chevy to the levee,
    But the levee was dry.
    Them good old boys were drinkin’ whiskey and rye
    Singin’, "this’ll be the day that I die."

    To fade.

    Respect is drawn by a person's own character, own ability...
    You cannot expect respect from everyone, 'giving' respect is also an ability of certain humans, and comes with respecting a part of yourself first...
    Consider this, does a criminal respect anybody? No, mostly because the criminal does not respect himself/herself for having done things that are wrong...I could cite many examples, but dont want to get footage here...
    In summary, when 'self-respect' is missing or less, then the ability of respecting others can be greatly affected...
