Pass It On®

About Timeout

Civility binds us as a society. It denotes respect. It allows us to disagree without being disagreeable. Civility encourages different points of view. This message, which we feel is both timely and relevant, brings home this important concept in a town meeting that is entertaining and instructive.

[lyrics]
That's the power of one.
One grain of sand can turn the tide,
One single spark can light the night.
One simple dream,
One gentle word,
One act of love from someone,
Can start a chain reaction.
It all begins in the heart,
In the power of one.

Civility. Pass It On!

Saw "Civility"on TV this morning. With what has happened in American Politics in the last 2 Years, I found this Video very Refreshing. Thank You! I HOPE the concepts takes hold and our 200,000,000 Registered Voters use their Power to Change The Face of Politics for the Betterment of the 99% of Americans.Selflessness, not Selfishness!
