Commenting with civility

To the Editor:

“By its practice of civility, a society reflects the value it places on the human person and, perhaps, even on human life itself,” said the Rev. Dennis Dease, president of the University of St. Thomas (Minn.).

I recently came across this quote in the St. Thomas alumni magazine. I think it is a wonderful sentiment, and one that more readers, including myself, should keep in mind when submitting letters to the editor and commenting on such letters on the Northwest Herald website.
