Show respect: don't cuss

One of the things I love about living in Utah is our large Greek community. Every year I always look forward to the annual Greek Festival and the hospitality of the Greek Orthodox Church.

However, I realize nobody's perfect.

While waiting in the food line on Sunday afternoon Sept. 12, I had the pleasure of hearing the gentleman behind me using the "F" word, complaining about the nice woman three people ahead of me. Later I had the pleasure of witnessing a few young college-age women use the "S" word below the church offices and beneath a crochet design of the Last Supper. Do they realize how disrespectful this is to the Greek Orthodox members and others?

I strongly encourage everyone to come to see the Greek culture, Greek cuisine, Greek music and the dancers. But please show respect and leave the foul language at home.
