Dignity: We’re Supposed to Have It

Dignity: A word. What it means to me or you is based how and where each of us was, either, directed OR allowed to MATURE. And maturity is not the event of the body reaching its “final” presentation/ “LOOK” to the world. The FOURTH DEFINITION of the Merriam-Webster Dictionary is this:A formal reserve or seriousness of MANNER, APPEARANCE,or LANGUAGE. [This is an outstanding mental diorama.] When we interact with ANYONE of “the CREATION”, sans their TYPE of chosen/ conditioned FAITH(S), National ‘PRIDE’, or what have you, each and every ONE of us MUST be treated as having WORTH.

dig⋅ni⋅ty

1. bearing, conduct, or speech indicative of self-respect or appreciation of the formality or gravity of an occasion or situation.
2. nobility or elevation of character; worthiness: dignity of sentiments.
3. elevated rank, office, station, etc.
4. relative standing; rank.
5. a sign or token of respect: an impertinent question unworthy of the dignity of an answer.
6. Archaic.

a. person of high rank or title.
b. such persons collectively.

Dignity isn’t defined by “technical evolution”, or world economical sovereignty. it is as a Person’s walking stride when they are happy, the eleven year old “boy” walking down a busy public street HAND-IN-HAND… with HIS FATHER. (Integrity is a close “relative: [Intertwined].)Merriam’s, again, tells us in its first definition:an adherence to moral and ethical principles; soundness of moral character; honesty.

Dignity is of the VIRTUES:[Merit, valor, potency are the \”lesser\” virtues.]

To “end” this, DIGNITY seems to be the manifestation of HONESTY.

By the way, TODAY is number 92: Of the ‘HUNDRED’… Does CHANGE have any kinship to Dignity, or its friends ?
