Respect



We have always been told that we need to act correctly
in class and in whatever we do, but as humans we like
to communicate and impress others with our wit or lack
there of. So it is hard to know the line between
respectable communication and lack of control. If we
talk to much and are lucky enough to get away with it,
we think that this is the line. So we assume that we
can go to this line and maybe even push it a little,
this is the wrong set of mind. We should be trying to
reach farther then the standard, going beyond the call
of duty or respect. If the teacher call you down, that
is not the line but should be considered past the line.
We should see that the teachers like wholesome talk,
but, like all people, they also need to maintain
control. The only difference is they have to make all
of us maintain control to, and that is nowhere near
easy. If we are respectable in class, then the teacher
is able to continue the talk.
Two of virtues we must follow are obedience and order.

We either ought to believe it or quit saying it” (Hakim 111). During the 1960’s, a great number of people did, in fact, begin to believe it. These years were a time of great change for America.

    Dreaming in the 1960s Dreaming in the 1960s In 1962, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said his most famous words: "I have a dream." He was not the only one who felt this way. For many, the 1960s was a decade in which their dreams about America might be fulfilled. For Martin Luther King Jr., this was a dream of a truly equal America; for John F. Kennedy, it was a dream of a young vigorous nation that would put a man on the moon; and for the hippy movement, it was one of love, peace, and freedom. The 1

That way, in case one doesn’t work, you can always resort to the second, or even third method if needed.

    1960s The 1960’s were a time of major political and social change. These changes were primarily fuelled by the youth of the time. Their parents had come from life in both the great depression of the 1930’s as well as World War II, and were on a whole more conservative than their children, a fact the younger generation did not like. In the early 60’s the electronic media (Television and radio) became an important communication tool, as opposed to the largely print based media of previous decades.
