A Call for Civility

Most of us value human relationships. We are regularly faced with the differences between ourselves and others and we choose to navigate those differences with as little conflict and drama as possible. We do not want to leave hurt feelings, broken friendships and childish behaviour in our wake as we travel through life. As we mature, we learn to handle interactions more or less successfully and most of us desire to leave a positive mark on the world. We also learn quickly that human interaction is quite messy and often complicated. I suggest a call to deeper civility.
