What I'm wondering about is the disappearance of civility in our culture. If we as adults can't handle disagreements with grace and dignity, how will our kids be able to do so?

Broken windows. Veiled threats. Actual death threats. Putdowns. Cursing.

It's always intriguing to me when people's values conflict even in their actions. They say they're concerned about the debt we're passing on to the next generation. Are they as concerned about the moral debt they're modeling for the next generation?
