Last month my family and I were invited to experience the new educational student matinee show at Medieval Times’ Buena Park Castle. Besides stating the obvious that it is an early show for children, the show focuses on real situations that our youth may face today like bullying, victims of gossip, and being unkind – just doing things that may hurt others. The first 20-minutes of the show include storylines that introduces “The Code of Chivalry” which are a set of rules established thousands of years ago to govern the conduct of the noble class to establish fairness, respect, compassion and understanding. Here are some of the scenarios:
- Looking down on the poor instead of offering assistance and compassion.
- Treating others differently or making fun of them, because they looked or dress differently.
- Gossiping, saying unkind things, or spreading false rumors when we weren’t their to witness it for ourselves.
“The Code of Chivalry teaches us to protect the weak, be loyal to our friends, and fight wrong when we encounter it.” – The King, Medieval Times
