I WAS RAISED 

I didn't just "grow up.” I was taught:

 

To speak when I enter a room

 

To say “please” and “thank you.”

 

To respect my elders and

    to get off my lazy butt and

        let the elder in the room

            have my chair.

 

To say “yes,sir,” and “no, sir."

 

To lend a helping hand to those in need.

 

To hold the door open for the person behind me.

 

To say ‘excuse me’ when it is needed.

 

To love people for who they are,

    not what I can get from them

 

To treat people the way I want to be treated

 

Remember, growing old is mandatory; growing up is optional.
