On the road to civility

Civility comes from the word civis, which in Latin means "citizen".

The last few days of post-election counting and dishonest White House statements reminded me of the Black Knight scene in the “Holy Grail” movie.

King Arthur: Look you stupid bastard, you’ve got no arms left.
Black knight: Yes I have.
King Arthur: Look!
Black knight: Just a flesh wound.

Trump doesn’t need to lose his limbs, just concede and keep quiet.

Taken from email sent today by Joe Biden:
In the face of unprecedented obstacles, a record number of Americans voted. Proving once again, that democracy beats deep in the heart of America.
With the campaign over, it’s time to put the anger and the harsh rhetoric behind us and come together as a nation.
It’s time for America to unite. And to heal.
