In light of the political climate and the recent elections, I thought this was such a great reminder of what I believe democracy is all about. #civility #democracy #stopthehate

I had written the following last year. Let's continue to pray for America. I hope everyone has a healthy and happy Saturday. I enjoy reading the words of others because they speak to how connected we are, and why we must look out for one another as much as possible. A simple word, phrase, quote or story left behind on a wall, street, sidewalk or bench, if written with good intentions and found by the right person, can be uplifting, healing, comforting and all inspiring. Sadly, this is not always the case. There are periods when the tone is belligerent and caustic, leading to feelings of anger and disdain. At times the message can be sad, creating emptiness in the heart and tears in the eyes, and there we are left to wonder – Who is this person? How can I help him/her? That’s where the power of prayer comes in handy, and no, I’m not talking religion. I do believe a person presenting with a caring disposition, heavy heart, and a purposeful soul can help others we are genuinely concerned about, and all it takes is the chant of good intentions. This is how a positive vibe is generated and forced out into the world, helping to restore humanity, and when the many come together in unison, I believe good things can happen. No matter what, I always try to imagine hope and meaning in all that I find, sharing it with the world when necessary, hoping others will savor the wisdom and ponder the significance, and for those times when what I read is less than kind, I send my prayer out on the wind, hoping it finds the target and thus generating a change of heart. Haters don't really hate you. They hate themselves because you're a reflection of what they wish to be – strong, solid and confident, a human being with empathy and compassion. Be a humanist. To the haters of the world, I continue to pray for you every day. #prayer #goodintentions #healing #civility #kindness #compassion #humanist #changeofheart #haters #lovewillsavetheday #empathy #icare #behealthy #behappy #giveadamn #avoiceofreason #avoiceofchange #makeadifference #igotyourback #loveunconditionally

Sometimes you have to a little dig deeper to find it....
[16/11/2018] We're more likely to be drawn to and connect with people who seem to emanate a certain charm or type of "aura". This can be partially explained as life being a cycle of energy: the way you approach and interact with others can do wonders for your personal image, and the kindness you show to another person (or being) will one day be repaid to you - in ways you may not currently expect or realise in the present. #bekind #begracious #berespectful #goodattitude #mindset #classypersonality #inspiration #positivity #selfimage #positiveimage #bestimpression #personalbrand #personalbranding #positiveenergy #goodvibes #flowofenergy #karma #spiritual #lifequotes #thoughts #lifemotto #philosophy #lifequotestoliveby #lawofattraction #mannersmatter #civility
Enough with all the arguments, insults, fights, and shootings. These last 2 years have been too crazy. Also enough with the blaming the other for the craziness. Everyone just stop it. Time to respect each other differences whatever they are. First time to get rid of the nationalists in the whitehouse and across the US. Also in Britain, Pakistan, Italy, Brazil. Then focus on help for those in need and to get help for those suffering from all forms of mental illness. #unity #civility #diversity #trump

This is a hard one for me... ••• ••• Has humanity and civility changed so much that we need to a reminder to “know the difference...” ••• I listened to a great TEDX talk today given by @bloudytenent titled “Is civility a sham” ••• I truly hope we haven’t gotten this far away from being human... ••• ••• ••• #narcissism #selfish #humanity #civility #kindness #decency #decenthuman #heart #friendship #community #loveandkindness #respect

. .Been ruminating on civility and calmness - both valued in our political system - and protest and violating the sacred spaces society has subconsciously delegated. . .violating sacred spaces is interrupting an event, area, or person with politicized speech that is antithetical to that which is normalized. Colin Kaepernick's kneeling is an excellent example of violating sacred spaces. Opponents admitted as such: "don't put politics in my entertainment." Ironically, their entertainment, since it is dominant and enjoyed by the dominant, and is normalized, is inherently political. It communicates values and meaning. . .By Deconstructing our social surroundings, we either defuse the sacredness, or utterly do away with pleasentries. Civility and calmness in political exchanges are pleasentries. They're privileged positions of the dominant class. It's an easy filter. Protestors are ignored, not because of their message, but because their mode of communication violates unspoken standards of normal political interaction. . ."Don't talk about politics, religion, or sex" is a big myth purpetrated by the dominant class. The question is, what do I value? What is helpful for the downtrodden and delegitimized? Civility only hides them. Respectfully addressing an oppressor only benefits the oppressor. Exactly what benefit is received by respecting the beliefs of those who hide their privileged ignorance and prejudice behind calls for respect? . .Am I supposed to courteously smile while you preach your degrading narrow minded hand-me-down beliefs? . .I'm not sure. But I do believe a lot of people deserve to be shaken out of their silly privileged comfortableness.
A technique, a method, an approach, a political theory. We must all remain adaptable (like water) and realize when new situations present problems that aren't effectively solved by our preferred approach or technique. #themedianreview #civility #civildiscourse #gop #dnc #republican #democrat #moderate #conservative #liberal #independent #progressive #libertarian #election #politics #political #politicsasusual

Thursday thoughts... The above quote👆🏾 is an excerpt from brainpickings.com a writeup BY MARIA POPOVA on How to Criticize with Kindness: Philosopher Daniel Dennett on the Four Steps to Arguing Intelligently “Just how charitable are you supposed to be when criticizing the views of an opponent?” ____ This reminds me of a quote by Paul of Tarsus "Let your conversation be gracious and attractive so that you will have the right response for everyone." Col 4:6, NLT _____ This is worth pondering on as November is the civility in communication awareness month. #thursday #november #civility #bukkyodusoteworldwide #bow #change #wearethecity #trailblazers #parenting #school #youth #teens #community #speech #words #wordsofwisdom #master #trainer #leadership #womeninbusiness #civilityexperts #civilityexpertuk

No one ever changed their mind because someone screamed at them enough or hated them into changing. It doesn’t work like that. ⁣ ⁣ You think your uncle is bad?! There are NEO-NAZIS who have changed their minds — active violent white supremacists who turned around and rejected hate. And you know what it took? Meeting the people they thought they hated — and listening and ultimately learning from them. ⁣ ⁣ And if you want someone to listen to you, you’ve gotta go first. ⁣ It ain’t fair. ⁣ It ain’t easy. ⁣ But it’s effective. ⁣ ⁣ Here’s Nelson Mandela: “I learned to have the patience to listen when people put forward their views, even if I think those views are wrong.“ Then when you respond, you’re responding to their actual ideas not some theory in your head. ⁣#HowToTalkPolitics
Excerpts from the 1949 gem "Esquire Handbook for hosts."

The political divides in our culture seem to be widening. But this past week a strange thing happened. We saw a rare example of humility, decency, and forgiveness right in the midst of the fray. We saw what happens when civility overcomes politics.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #TrueHorizon #Politics #Civility #Forgiveness #PeteDavidson #DanCrenshaw

Drawing from Dr. Reuben West's definition of Civility, which sums it up as treating others the way God wants them to be treated, we will be discussing a related topic - the identity of Entrepreneurship. This topic provides further insights on Civility as being a natural principle upon which human beings were created to co-exist amicably together. The origin and identity of Entrepreneurship can be traced back to creation. As surprising as it sound, you will be astonished to find out that how human beings were a part of God intrinsic plan to sustain the earth using the unique gifts we all have to trade and live together with one another. In God's grand plan, humans were to co-exist by cooperating with one another rather than compete with one another. Our guest speaker, Ubong King, will blow your mind on how understanding our various foundation will not only enable us function effectively and productively but will help us comprehend the Entrepreneurship-Identity concept. Join us again on Friday, November 16, 2018 @ 8.00am for our Facebook live series “Civilized Presence”. Topic : The Identity of Entrepreneurship Our guest for this session is Ubong King. Mr King is a seasoned Entrepreneur and Business Coach. He is also an Ambassador for Peace and Violence free world, inNigeria. He has a strong background in Business development and Security services. He is the founder of “HANGOUTWITHUBONGKING” an initiative that creates an ecosystem for young entrepreneurs within communities to network, unwind and learn. Invite friends, colleagues and family to be part of this. This session will be hosted by THE CIVILITY ACADEMY and broadcasted on our Facebook page @soyouniqueexperts and on our Instagram page @soyouniqueexperts. You don’t want to miss this! See you then!

I have been a big fan of @bradmontague for a long time, and am a newly converted fan of @sallykohn (after reading her phenomenal book “The Opposite if Hate”) so when I heard the two were working together on a project? I was totally in. Follow them on Instagram for tips leading into the holidays about how to talk about politics without losing your minds! Couldn’t ALL of us use some help with this? Also, it involves drawings of bunnies, so win/win. . . . . . #civility #respect #optimistic #thanksgiving #family #kindness

✴Some may think, okay well this is late, BUT, knowing this & these values, plus honoring the Military, is not a day for me, it's my life & MY everyday blessing. Though sick these past few days, those I was able to reach, know what/where I was & why my social media silence while serving others was notable & necessary ✊🏽✴ ☆ Barack Obama: “It’s about how we treat our veterans every single day of the year.  It’s about making sure they have the care they need and the benefits that they’ve earned when they come home. It’s about serving all of you as well as you’ve served the United States of America.” ☆ Ronald Reagan: “We remember those who were called upon to give all a person can give, and we remember those who were prepared to make that sacrifice if it were demanded of them in the line of duty, though it never was. Most of all, we remember the devotion and gallantry with which all of them ennobled their nation as they became champions of a noble cause.” ☆ #veteransday #armisticeday #duty #service #sacrifice #respect #devotion #civility #unity #military #nobility #blessings #thankyou 😘 #muchlove #militaryfamily #armybrat #itsalifestyle#spreadpeaceandlove ✌🏽❤
