Civil Discourse

CompositeMy father was born in Rochester NY in 1920 and passed away in Naples FL in 2005. He was a lawyer by trade. During my adolescence and my early adulthood he often quoted a line of Oliver Wendell Holmes when discussions of personal liberty and conflicts among mankind arose.
“The right to swing my fist ends where the other man’s nose begins.”
Oliver Wendell HolmesIn today’s rancorous discourse perhaps we would be well served at listening to his many words of wisdom and gentile balance.
I am lifting my prayers and my well wishes that on the public and private stages we might all grow in grace and avoid the digressions of demagoguery
Thanks Dad, for shining these lights early and often.
