What are some things that you care deeply about that others seem not to care about?
The environment....hunger...the homeless....educational reform.....politics without special interest groups.....proper parenting...legalization of marijuana....is that enough?
That people aren't friendly or helpful to one another anymore. Especially if it puts them out. Whether it's lack of practice, because people are more isolated with the technology out there, or just too busy to say hi, or weren't taught that it's a nice thing to smile at others, even if you don't know them! A guy died this Christmas in a Target store and nobody noticed. Simply sad and tragic that Americans have stooped so low. That is something that bothers me for my kids and I try to teach them, because the world is big and scary enough without the pervasive decline of kindness and friendliness between people.
Helping children with disabilities ride horses. This is a disability treatment that helps them a lot. Children with physical disabilities get stronger. Children with mental disabilties , Aspuburger's Syndrome or Autism have improvement because they connect with the horses, and then start to have connection with people. I know this because my daughter has Aspurberger's syndrome. The stables that she rode at helped her so much it was amazing to me. I even wrote a hub about it. There is not much that is helping these childen anymore because the state took away funding for it. Some people read that hub and gave me some great ideas, I put it in my favorites site. I want to thank them so much. This is a wonderful question.
Calligraphy, health concerns (trans fat, preventing Alzheimer's), working out, etc.
Sensitivity training about gender and race, green enviroment movement, mentally ill population, term limits, animal rights, world food programs, handicapped children, space research, perserving the arts, world peace... And the list goes on!
Respect for people who have some physical or emotional problem.
Respect for people who have a different faith than you.
Respect for the elderly--to many or just forgotten.
Respect for the veterans of Vietnam and all wars. I say Vietnam in particular because the soldiers who came home were not treated with respect. There were no parades. They were the target of ridicule and anger by many. As the Kenny Rogers song Ruby notes, "It wasn't me that started that crazy Asian way, but I was proud to go do my patriotic chore." These are the lost veterans. They did not start the war. Most were drafted and had little choice. They just did their jobs.
I first must agree with Larry Wall on respect. Secondly, I would say cleanliness. I see people all the time rubbing or picking their noses or sneezing or coughing into their hands and then they want to shake hands with me, hand me my change, or rub their germs all over some item that I will have to handle. I carry anti-germ gel everywhere I go.
Wow....what great answers! What a better world this place would be if there were more people like you all! Thank you all so very much for sharing your views.
