Dignity

I’ve recently watched two movies, Ip Man and Ip Man 2. It wasn’t until the end of the second movie that I realized that the main character, Ip Man, was a real person. He was a real martial arts teacher whose students included the famous Bruce Lee.

In the second movie, after the end of a long fight, he said something that keeps running through my mind. He said:

Though people may have different status in life, everybody’s dignity is the same.

I can’t stop thinking about that. Everybody’s dignity is the same.” And I ask myself, what am I doing in my interactions with other people that supports and protect their dignity? Can I disagree with someone, yet still allow them to maintain their dignity? These are questions that I’ll think about for a while.
