For the love of God…GET UP.

When you’re on a crowded train and a lady is standing. GET UP!

When your mother, wife, aunt or uncle walks into the room. GET UP!

If you’re overeating. GET UP!

If you’re unfit. GET UP!

If you’re feeling down. GET UP!

If you’ve been knocked down. GET UP!

It occurred to me while riding a crowded train into the city with my wife and son that if ALL men would GET UP for any lady who isn’t sitting…we’d be on the right track to restoring some of America’s GET UP.

I mean after all, its lacking…isn’t it? In all sorts of ways.

A simple idea like giving up your seat to a lady during your morning commute just might change the way you feel and think about yourself—at least for the time being. And it gives that woman a pretty good indication of just what you think of her, a stranger—at that moment—when it matters.

GET UP, it speaks volumes about you.

And don’t give me a lady doesn’t need a man to give up his seat crap…that it’s sexist. It’s not. It’s a gentleman’s gesture. One that has the potential to snowball throughout the day, week, months and years. For you, whoever you GOT UP for and…for whoever witnessed it.  

Get up. It’s what missing today. Good old-fashioned American manners.

Don’t hide behind your newspaper, Kindle, smartphone or lazy napping eyelids. That woman standing is someone’s wife, mother, sister or aunt. Your wife, your sister…your aunt. Be the example of GET UP we’re lacking today.

 May sound like I’m reaching, but years ago—when it was expected, when it was commonplace—when men GOT UP, there was a lot more GET UP.

Whether you want to lose weight, get fit, earn respect…whatever, it starts with a bit of Get Up.

So for the love of God, GET UP…it’s a sign of self-respect.
