The topic is about what profession you respect the most above other jobs, not about respect at individual level: we're talking about specific professions here, not individual persons.

I have to say that I respect teachers the most as they create the foundation of civilization/culture by their work and have to study hard for it, even though they have just low to mediocre pay and may have stressful, even somewhat hostile working environment (trouble pupils). However nurses and police officers are very close behind.

badhairday;3829218Soldier, since they are fighting for our freedom. Police officer is close second though.

Are they fighting for your freedom, on the other side of the world:Puzzled:

If they were to fight an full-scale invasion, then yes I would give you right. But now, no way.........not even close.

Depends on location. I respect a policeman who works in a violent urban area more than a firefighter, but a firefighter more than a village policeman who deals with burglery at most.

I went with the soldiers. Taking example of Canada's men and women serving in Afghanistan and other parts of the world, putting their lives on the line everyday to bring peace and stability to a country that has known nothing but war for the past 25-30 years. Firefighters and police come a very close 2nd.

I'd have to go with teachers on this one; whether you want to attribute this to my age or not is your choice.

Anyway, some of the biggest impacts on my life have been made by my teachers. They have the power to change kids for their entire lives, for better or worse. Not to mention they work for very little pay and have to put up with shit from students like me (=p) and whiny parents.

A lot of people don't realize the power that they hold; they choose what we know and what we don't know, especially in the pre-high school years.

Anyone that loves what their doing and pour their heart and souls into their jobs automaticaly get's my respect. Profession doesn't mean a thing to me, As I see every job whether grand or menial as all cogs of a bigger machine which I would like to think of as progress.

There's no choice for a doctor, so I picked nurse. They have to go through all that schooling, work long hours, and have a really tough job. Remember, they have to deal with all the little people crying about a cold or a broken finger, and have to perform complex things, such as surgeries, diagnosis of different problems and just generally having to have good people skills.

What do you mean with "most of the time"?

As I see it, the last time USA came even close to fight for THEIR freedom was when you got in to the war with Japan in 1941 and when an Japanese invasion at least was possible. But besides that, the wars you been involved in has been on the other side of the planet were you stuck your nose in something that didn't concern you nor your freedom.

I've always found that odd as well . .

For me, I suppose it would have to be the folk in the medicine, considering a good chunk of the population rely on one drug or another for a stable life, they keep people alive, and do not get much praise from the public.

As much as I respect a soldier, I can't say they come close. SW3D3 summarized my thoughts very well, soldiers are always in the spotlight . .
