I have always loved George Washington's Rules for Civility and Decent Behavior, and I have decided to try to post weekly the "Rule for the Week". I will just go through the rules, post them, and translate them into modern language.
The first rule is:
Every Action done in
Company, ought to be with Some Sign of Respect, to those that are Present.
Everything you do in a group should be done in a way that shows respect to all those you are with.
