REFLECT UPON THIS: What The World Needs Now… Respect @RRBC_Org @RRBC_RWISA @Tweets4RWISA @JohnJFioravanti @NonnieJules #Quotes

Our friend John Fioravanti hasn’t posted for quite a while, but when he did yesterday, it was a post worthy of being shared far and wide. John is kinder than I am, but his words resonate with me, as I believe they will with you. His post is moving and thought-provoking, worthy of some deep thought about how we, as humans, can do better. Thank you, John!

“We need to reject any politics that targets people because of race or religion. This isn’t a matter of political correctness. It’s a matter of understanding what makes us strong. The world respects us not just for our arsenal; it respects us for our diversity and our openness and the way we respect every faith.”

As a retired secondary school educator, I am a firm believer in lifelong learning, and it need not take place in a formal classroom. Today, the Internet allows anyone who is curious to discover information and analysis about any topic they can imagine. It is in the context of the lifelong learner that I wish to reflect on President Barack Obama’s words quoted above from his final State of the Union Address on January 12, 2016.

  3. I tried to leave a comment on John’s post last night, but so far it has not shown up there. Not sure what is up with Word Press, but some sites I have to sign in to, and even then the comments seem to get lost. Of late I have taken to copy and paste the comment on your site just in case, but last night I was tired and did not do that. My bad.

    • I’ve had the same issue a few times, PLUS now WordPress seems to have changed some other things, and when I go into “Posts” to search for a prior post, it doesn’t give me the option to choose a category, date, and keyword! Grrrrrrrrrrrr. I wish to hell they would just leave well enough ALONE! 🤛 I’m sorry you lost your comment. 😥
