Respect For Others Is The Highest Duty Of Civil Life—Get That Through Your Head

Here is a sign that was up in the elementary school where I voted in Houston’s municipal elections last month.

Is it possible that “civic life” was the term that was meant to be used rather than “civil life?”

No matter. The message is clear enough.

I could write a long blog post right now about whatever, but what could I say that would improve on this message?

Imagine if people got this idea through their heads in our colleges or in our churches.

Often the simplest things are the most important ideas to communicate.

What the hell is wrong with people? Why are so many unable to grasp simple and decent things?

  1. What a great message ! Civic (as a citizen), civil (as a person) are both right for me. At least they would be in French ! These words should be read by many everywhere, slowly but surely their meaning may well get through peoples’ head, as you rightly say. I like your blog. Thanks for all you share.
