Mansfield Minute with Mayor Detwiler

Turning hostility into civility and more.

 

by John Vogt - November 16, 2018

Today’s world can be a hostile place. There seems to be a rising culture of meanness growing in our country. And, it’s just not found in the larger cities. Rudeness and people being unkind can strike anywhere. And, with the convenience of social media to keep us connected 24/7 people also seem to be emboldened when it comes to being nasty. We can hide behind our machines and say horrible things.

On this edition of Mansfield Minute, Mayor Mike Detwiler of Mansfield, PA addressed this issue thoughtfully and constructively. Here are some of Mayor Mike’s suggestions on how we can conduct ourselves in ways that are more friendly and beneficial to our neighborhoods.

Say kind things about others. We all have our moments when we are stressed and act out. Let’s make a conscious effort to be civil.

Don’t spread falsehoods or gossip about others. This kind of behavior does no good at all.

Don’t isolate yourself with people who are like-minded all the time. Get to know others outside your circle. And, listen to their perspective on life and issues. You don’t have to agree with them. But, in the experience, you will learn a lot about others and yourself. Remember, it’s okay to agree to disagree.

Practice random acts of kindness. You can truly be creative with this one. The skies the limit.

These are just some of the words of encouragement that Mayor Detwiler offers us today. There’s more. Please take a few brief moments to enjoy today’s braodcasrt. You will be glad you did.
