Some people devote their lives to causes greater than themselves. And for many that devotion comes late in life. But Craig Kielburger discovered it early. He was in 7th grade when the death of a boy changed his life. It was a change so profound that, through Kielburger, it has now saved and transformed other lives all around the globe. In that moment, 19 years ago, Craig Kielburger was struck by a profound truth –something as important as changing the world can’t be left to grown ups.
Craig Kielburger: Kids are looking to get involved. They’re searching for it. And in an era where, you know adults often are looking for meaning and purpose in their lives, kids also want to assert who they are, not just by the videogames they play or the peer groups they belong to, but by the contribution they make. And that’s part of a youth self-identity in the world. And not only is it good for the child, my God, our world needs it.

Showing respect for others is one of the most important values in the world. It means showing care for another person or thing, like the environment.
Without respect, everything around you would be less peaceful. There would be more wars, more problems and less happiness.
You show respect in many ways everyday that you may not even realize! Respect occurs when you:
- Listen to others
- Play fair
- Use good manners
- Wait your turn
- Compliment someone
- Pick up after yourself
- How you treat others
Being respectful is one of the key ingredients to being the best person you can be. Start by checking out some of the great respect quotations below:
- “Every human being, of whatever origin, of whatever station, deserves respect. We must each respect others even as we respect ourselves.” – U. Thant
- “Never judge someone by the way he looks or a book by the way it’s covered; for inside those tattered pages, there’s a lot to be discovered.” – Stephen Cosgrove
