Chivalry is a quality that seems to be waning in our society today. When I think of chivalry I don’t just think about how men treat women, I think about how we all treat each other. To me another word for chivalry is simply class. The spirit of chivalry is being attuned to the needs of others instead of thinking only of ourselves. In sports we see constant showboating and disrespect under the guise of “celebrating individuality.” In schools students use curse words and text in the middle of class. We need a return to chivalry, which is more than just pulling out a chair for a lady or giving up your seat on the bus for a senior citizen. It’s treating all people with respect and pausing to think how you can help the person next to you.
