I have a right to hear and be heard. It is my responsibility to listen when others are speaking.
I have the right to be respected. It is my responsibility to treat others with respect.
I have the right to be safe. It is my responsibility to respect the personal safety of others.
I have the right to privacy and personal space. It is my responsibilty to respect personal property
of others, and to accept their right to privacy.
