Although Joseph modeled respect for Marcus by picking up trash on their outings, it was Marcus who suggested they bring a plastic bag to take that respect one step further. His reverence for the woods led him to want to show respect by keeping the forest free from garbage. Although reverence is terribly important and will naturally lead to respect, reverence is not a prerequisite for respectful behavior. For the sake of peace, we must all bring an attitude of respect to our interactions, regardless of whether we feel reverence.
He asked his dad what exactly made the water unsafe for swimming and where the pollution came from. Joseph didn’t know the answers to these questions but suggested that he and Marcus could do some research and find out. When they first started going to the Wissahickon woods, Marcus noticed that his dad sometimes picked up trash and put it in his pocket to throw out later, but there was a lot of trash, so one day Marcus suggested that they bring a plastic bag with them. They got in the habit of making sure that the path was free of trash wherever they walked.
It wasn’t only Marcus who benefited from the trips to the Wissahickon woods. Joseph’s reverence was rekindled, he more deeply connected with his son, and he remembered the stories of his childhood that he was able to share with Marcus. Respect Respect is reverence turned from an emotion into an attitude towards others. We don’t just feel respect, we show it. As our children grow up, we can, while still nurturing reverence, move toward instilling respect. We do this in part by showing respect to them and in part by demonstrating what it means to have respect for others.
