I gave a donation to the Salvation Army recently. They do a good job, it seems to me, especially at Christmas; and I like to hear their brass band playing.
I got a real proper thank-you letter, which I wasn't expecting. As the Post Script to the letter said:
We have noted your request that you'd prefer not to hear from The Salvation Army by post. I fully understand and we will respect your wish.
Well, that demonstrates a whole new meaning of the phrase we will respect your wishes.
But never mind, I still think it's a good cause.
I do wish, though, that they hadn't spent some of the money I sent them on sending that letter.
Word To Use Today: respect. This word comes from the Latin rēspicere. to look back or pay attention to, from specere, to look.
