One night while Stan Lee and his daughter J.C. were watching television, J.C. commented about the U.S. flag pin that so many politicians wear. She asked why there couldn’t be a solidarity pin that anyone–regardless of race or political affiliation–could wear.
The idea sent Stan Lee to the drawing board. Days later, Stan designed the Respect Pin and started Hands of Respect to promote a culture of respect among all communities across the nation.

RESPECT by Stan Lee
When God made man he went all out
As far as we can tell
He made some black, He made some white
And other shades as well
He placed them on the verdant Earth
To live and love and thrive
He favored none, He loved each one
And kept that love alive
Now the Lord’s perplexed and growing vexed
At those who’d mar his plan
Instead of love some practice hate
A practice we must ban
We all must share this tiny sphere
On which we live and die
Respect for all, in every way,
Should be our battle cry
It’s not too late to initiate
Friendship between the races
So let’s heed the call of the Lord of All
With the love that He embraces
