Civility is about more than just politeness, although politeness is a necessary first step.
-It is about disagreeing with respect
-Seeking common ground as a starting point for dialogue about differences
-Listening past one's preconceptions, and teaching others to do the same.
Civility is the hard work of staying present even with those with whom we have a deep-rooted and fierce disagreement.
