Civil: (1) of or relating to ordinary citizens and their concerns as opposed to military or religious matters.  (2) courteous, polite, well-mannered

Martin Luther King is probably crying in his grave because of the current climate in America.  We are no longer a civil nation.  We have degenerated into an abysmal collection of hate-spewing, vitriolic rhetoric that is tearing this country apart.

What lessons were we supposed to learn from our parents? Standards and principles of behavior, decency, honesty, the difference between right and wrong, understanding, tolerance, kindness, justice, charity, generosity, and respect.....NOT vindictiveness, hatred, contempt, hostility, lying, and murderous, accusatory and hateful language.

On this day of remembrance, we must, as a nation, understand that everyone's opinion has value, realize we are all equal and just stop the language of hate.  Please!!!!
