When responding to posts, articles or emails written by those on the opposing side of your view, please take the time to respond not to what someone has said, but stop and think about why they may have said it. From there, follow these simple rules:
1. When in doubt of what someone meant, please ask.
2. Remember the person who said what made you angry didn’t make you angry. The words made you angry, not the person.
3. Behind every person that posts on the web is a set of human needs like safety, health, connection, or the simple need to be heard. When you take the time to respond to the needs rather than the words, you can connect with the human behind the words. Connection to humanity is life!
