Issue #138 – The Talk Worth Having

Opening Remarks: Debate BaitingWhen people get together and talk politics you know it can sometimes get heated. That is particularly true in this presidential election year. The worse offenders seem to be the candidates. We don’t set a good example for our young people when we can’t have civil discussions. It is okay to agree to disagree. But name calling and being rude – well, all I can say is my mama taught me better.
One of the things we should watch out for and avoid is baiting others. You know, throwing out a remark sure to raise the hackles of another. I have a sense of humor and I think it can be alright to tease a little. But that’s not what I am referring to here. I’m talking about purposely trying to “get someone’s goat”.
This month’s newsletter focuses on having a talk worth having, and that’s not a debate, but rather the talk of a lifetime. I hope you enjoy the issue and that you think about having such a talk in October which happens to be Family History Month.
