I was watching a commercial before the Celtics game that was sponsored by Cadillac. It had a parking garage security guy kissing some anonymous athlete's butt. It just made me think about if some athletes who are called "Mr" & "Sir" whereever they go had not made the big time, what would they be called? Let's get right to the point shall we? Do we as Americans believe successful people deserve more respect than the average Joe or Jane? Here's what I believe; What I own, do for a living, how much I make, how good looking I am or well spoken I can be...NONE of these things has anything to do with who I am. I am just as good, deserving of respect and every bit as much of a man without any of the above. I also believe that even if I put every bit of my energy & strength into it, I can never be any "better than" anyone else. I am no better than nor any less than anyone else. Thoughts?
