civility is in you. [not-so-flawed wednesday]

lincoln quote copy.JPG

it was election day and i was passing through the denver airport, walking from one end of the united airlines terminal to the other.  i knew that later that night, i would be tuning in to the results of the midterm elections and would, undoubtedly, read a plethora of articles on my news app that would sadden me.  the divisiveness is palpable, an uneven heartbeat in our country, a dis-ease that is rampant.

i passed a bank of telephones (the ones that you put coins in to make phone calls) and above each cubicle was a poster.  i read each as i walked past.  i was much further down the terminal when i turned around to go back.  lincoln’s words captured my attention and i wanted to pass-it-on as the poster says.  “a house divided…cannot stand.”

it made me wish for what should be simple things:  dialogue.  grace.  equality.  kindness. unity.  and yes, civility.  they are all there.  in us.

pass it on.
