Sunday Expressions: The Civility Experiment

This has such a beautiful message for all of us!! 
I've given a lot of thought to the way that we act and react in general. I've come to the decision that we should have our own moral compass to keep ourselves in the direction we wish to go... However, it is not our place to judge others by our own compass or expectations. We are all here having individual human experiences. We need to be able to see beyond the things that make us different and find the common ground that we share as human beings. Find acceptance that everyone walks their own path with their own history and trials. How lovely it would be if that actually worked out that way. 

I found this video so interesting! How many of us are like the woman in the beginning of her interview? How many assume as they think this way, in reality are not? What a GREAT lesson for us ALL!
What are your thoughts?
Have a beautiful Sunday!

Funny how I keep running into this same theme lately—civility. Everyone seems to be on the same wavelength. At least, everyone everywhere I happen to be. Great message to pass on!

Very timely thoughts.
There is so much of criticism and unkindness everywhere we look.

I agree 100%. It is our own moral compass that makes us who we are. The video was terrific.
