In William Shakespeare's play, The Tragedy of Julius Caesar, people did not agree with Caesar but he was still their leader. Striving to be a great leader, Caesar was not respected by some people.

A few weeks ago, we had a mini cheer camp for girls grades first through second. Helping the mini cheerleaders, I saw that without leaders, people would have no idea what to do. I also saw that not all of the girls agreed with what we did. They might not have agreed with us all the time, but without our leadership, they would have had no clue what they were doing on the field and track a few Friday's ago. Seeing that they didn't show respect, we tried to be patient. This makes me think that sometimes even if you don't like your leader, they still want to help you in every way possible. Even though some people might not like cheerleaders, we try our best and I know that Julius Caesar tried hard also.

So whether or not you are a cheerleader or a ruler like Julius Caesar, it still is extremely important to respect your leaders because without them, who knows what our world would be like today.
