My friends at the National Institute for Civil Discourse are taking their ideas home for the holiday. (Thanksgiving in the U.S. is this coming Thursday.) Your Civility Survival Guide is a nice list of things to consider saying – or not saying – during this big family day.
I plan to keep those ideas handy over the entire weekend.
By the way, Thanksgiving in the United States started in 1864, I believe, during our Civil War. This was a time when things must have felt anything but civil as the nation was being pulled apart.
And Happy Thanksgiving.
