civility

Would you:
...be willing to be civil in your public discourse and behavior?
...be willing to be respectful of others, whether or not you agree with them?
...be willing to stand against incivility when you see it?

What would it look like if we all agreed to take this pledge?

Check out  the Civility Project. It was recently shut down due to lack of participation.
Of the 585 politicians asked to sign the pledge, only three did. (heavy sigh)

Perhaps, for Martin Luther King Day, we could all sign the Civility Project as citizens - with the hope/expectation/intention that we will all be more civil in our daily lives. Then maybe, our political figures would do the same.
