Amazing Courtesy

As I travel the great state of Ohio, I am amazed by the every day courtesy of people everywhere. Countless times I see kind folks holding the door for one another and hear phrases like "excuse me, pardon me and thank you." Rarely is a door ever closed in my face. In the midst of busy city traffic, kind motorist will blink their headlights allowing me a place in line to make a necessary exit ramp. From what I observe, old fashioned values are still alive. When I was a young boy a family member gave me a plaque for my wall that said "Curtis, Courteous One" with a corresponding Bible Verse. I have never forgotten that plaque and do my best to show others common courtesy each day. As a young boy, I remember Mom quietly teaching values of courtesy when meeting people in public. Two of my favorite passages from the Bible "Do unto others as you would have them do to you" and "Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good."
