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.
