AUGUST IS NATIONAL WIN WITH CIVILITY MONTH!
People being civil to other people is what makes the world a whole lot better and is the key focus of National Civility Month, which is held in August each year. It is well-known that civility is a social lubricant that enables us to get along and discuss things better. Civility is a polite act or expression using kindness, empathy, and respect. Consider the way you conduct yourself when faced with adversity. Adversity never happens to people with disabilities, right? Wrong! Adversity is everywhere, and to make systemic change we have to remember we will get further using civility.
