Virtue of the Month

It’s important to show civility to each person you see throughout the day.  Maybe there is someone who you don’t get along with very well – or someone that you are in a disagreement with.  It is STILL important to be civil to them.  That means that you shouldn’t purposely ignore them or give them mean looks. It’s important to look at them and say hello to them if they come up to you, answer them in a calm, respectful voice if they talk to you and only use kind words.
