Words of Wisdom
In any democracy, there will always be disagreements on everything from the economy to foreign policy to social issues. It’s not always easy to resolve these disagreements. Even though there may be caring and responsible people on both sides of every issue, the communication between those who disagree can become very disrespectful, whether that communication is face-to-face, on television, online, or in the newspapers.
But our democracy depends on responsible citizens who have the courage to discuss difficult issues in respectful ways.
This is called civil discourse: talking to one another in ways that are respectful so we gain insight into each other’s viewpoints.
Not everyone thinks the same way, but we can learn to engage in a respectful debate and then work together to find solutions. Without civil discourse, everyone loses.
With something to think about, make it a great day – the choice is yours.
