Civility in the Face of War
This past week has been a somber one for the world as we witnessed the tragic events unfolding in Israel. We saw innocent women, children, and civilians subjected to unnecessary and brutal harm due to violence and war.
I penned my book, "The Soul of Civility," as a humanistic manifesto, a reminder that gains even more significance during times of conflict. Civility represents the fundamental respect we owe one another as members of the human community, even when we hold differing opinions and perspectives.
Throughout history and across cultures, there have been established "war norms" designed to protect innocent women, children, and civilians, aiming to prevent needless suffering and our mutual destruction.
In this moment of senseless violence and human suffering, I hope that my book can serve as a valuable resource, rekindling an understanding of the precious gift of our shared humanity – both our own and that of others.
With warm regards,
