• You admire (respect) a historical figure who stood up for what she believed in, even when it was hard.
• You are quiet in a library to show that you care about (respect) others' need to read without interruption.
• You follow your parents' rules to show them you care (respect) how they feel about the situation.
• You don't call people names because you care about (respect) their feelings.
• You dress, speak, and act in a way that shows you care about what you know is right and safe, because you care about (respect) yourself and your well-being.
• You don't interfere with other people's right to look, think, or act differently than you because you care about (respect) their feelings and well-being.
