Everybody has an opinion and each of us wants to be heard. But if we’re all talking at once we can’t be heard and we can’t hear others. It’s time to play like the grownups in the room. Free speech is only free if we act with civility. How about we agree to let each person speak. Then, even before the discourse begins, we won’t act in fear and feel the need to rush in and voice our expressions. We will go around the room in an orderly fashion confident in the knowledge that we will be heard and we will hear others. Conflict has no place in mindful expression. You can be true to your position and appreciate diversity. Who knows, you might learn something new or change your mind!
