Civil Conversations Project

You are not the only one who wishes that we could just be decent and human to each other, even when we disagree. This is an idea that I hold deeply, a value that I work toward. It does not matter if we don't see eye to eye, what matters is that we are human with common needs and feelings. What matters is that if we are willing to treat each other with respect, we can reach compromises and understandings that serve us all better than perpetual shouting matches and hateful standoffs.

I just heard someone speak on this subject on NPR, and found this link to several other speakers. This is good stuff: http://www.onbeing.org/project/civil-conversations-project/1960
