Day 8 – Respect

This past weekend some young boys attempted to knock over protective pylons placed in front of our office window to keep cars from driving through. (Note: A car drove through my office this Fall and did massive destruction.)
One of my teammates was in their office and witnessed these boys doing this while a group of parents stood by and ignored the behavior.
This is disappointing on many fronts. First of all, why would these kids think it is okay to destroy private property? And secondly, why are the adults standing around watching and not doing anything to discipline these kids?
Respect other people’s property. And parents, teach your kids to do the same. No good comes out of vandalism and destroying the personal property of others.
