Disrespected

On the last day of class, one of my seniors disrespected me in a major way. I have seen her show disrespect toward other teachers and students over the last two years, but the frequency has increased during the last month or so. On occasion, she would do little things to me too. But this time, her offense was blatant and intentional. (See my quote about the character of seniors.)
Being the last day of school, there is not much point in any type of discipline. I guess she gets away with it. But I have lost all respect for this person. In fact, I was probably the last teacher that held any respect for her. But that is all gone now.
And the sad thing is, she does not realize any of this. She has trampled on all of her relationships without regard to people’s feelings. She has left a wake of burning bridges and doesn’t even smell the smoke.
As Christ as taught us, you must love your enemy. I don’t like this person any more. I have worked on trying to forgive her, but I am worried about what I will say or do when I see her at graduation. I pray that she finds some sense of inner peace. She is going to have a difficult life if she does not discover that God can be found in the way we interact and treat the people around us. And I honestly hope that she finds happiness in her life. It will be hard for her to find happiness unless she changes her ways.
