Respect Day is celebrated on the 18 of September and was created to encourage people to focus more on ways in which they can be respectful to others. For many the day involves being more attentive to loved ones, but it can really be used as a catalyst for treating any people with a more polite approach.

“Humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard once wrote: ‘A broad examination of history shows clearly that men follow those they respect. Respect is a recognition of inspiration, purpose and competence,’ said Clemence Chevrot, Director of the Tampa Bay Charity Coalition and the Community Affairs Director for the Church of Scientology Flag Service Organization. “Respect Day was the perfect day to acknowledge the leaders who not only are respected but are teaching our youth what respect is all about.”
