About This TV Commercial

Civility binds us as a society. It denotes respect. It allows us to disagree without being disagreeable. Civility encourages different points of view. This message, which we feel is both timely and relevant, brings home this important concept in a town meeting that is entertaining and instructive.

Civility, Pass It On.

That's the power of one.
One grain of sand can turn the tide,
One single spark can light the night.
One simple dream,
One gentle word,
One act of love from someone,
Can start a chain reaction.
It all begins in the heart,
In the power of one.

Civility. Pass It On!

Civility, how profound it is. This commercial depicts it genuinely. I think its a good reminder to those who have lost sight of it. How to just be civil to one another. Its a very simple golden rule we should follow by in everyday life, unfortunately in today's society people forget how to do that. This is something we should all see and live by each day.

As my son's young Chemistry teacher told a group of Fairfax parents this week..."I tell my students, there is more to this world than what happens in this room." She wants to hear their views, issues and stories. It's not just about her agenda. She acts with civility and respects her students. Let's learn from differences and work from what we do agree on.

I guess you're never too old for a time out. Adults don't know how badly they deserve a time out sometimes.
