Code of Chivalry

King Arthur of the Round Table is a heroic figure of English legend. Arthur and his knights were said to live by a set of beliefs known as the Code of Chivalry. A few rules of the code include:

Live one’s life so that it is worthy or respect and honor.
Live for freedom, justice, and all that is good.
Be polite and attentive.
Never betray a confidence or a comrade.
Protect the innocent.

Come up with a modern Code of Chivalry. Write a list of a least 10 things people should do today to make modern society more chivalrous-that is, more considerate and courteous.

Here is my Code of Chivalry, the Code of Courtesy:

Help out anyone you can, whenever you can.
Respect your elders.
Do not lie.
Do not belch or fart in public, unless absolutely necessary.
Say “Yes, sir” or “Yes, ma’am” and “No, sir” or “No, ma’am” when your parents ask a question.
Care for the sick or injured.
When people are talking or listening to something, do not make a big racket.
Say “Please” and “Thank you” whenever possible.
Do not intentionally hurt or harm a living being, especially if you are a intelligent being.
Do not steal.

I hope if people follow this code, they will become more courteous.
