Courtesy is catching

like a cough or cold.

Smiles are contagious,

spread by young and old.

Caring is infectious,

saving us from strife.

Manners make a difference

to our way of life.

Kindness opens doors

leading to respect.

Treating someone fairly

always is correct.

Let’s create a feeling

of good will toward all.

With concern for others,

we’ll be walking tall.
