Raised to show respect

I was raised to show respect.

I wasn't dragged up, I was taught to knock
before I open a door. Say hello when I enter
a room. Say please, Say thank you and
show respect to my elders.
I let another person have my seat if they
need it, say "yes sir" and "no sir"
and help others when they need me to,
not stand on the side lines and watch.
I will hold the door for others
behind me and say "excuse me"
should I need to pass.
I love people for who they are,
 not what I can get from them and most
importantly, I was raised to treat people
exactly how I would like to be treated by other.

It's called respect.
