Civil Discourse

A social media message from an old college friend:

Seems reasonable
Back in the 1980s, the individual who posted this suggestion was a nice young woman from a small town about 40 miles from my hometown. As I remember her, she was a little awkward socially, but smart and attractive. She was on the periphery of my social circle and I didn't chat her up a lot, but I was always happy to see her around. Thirty-five years on, she'd prefer I were obliterated, but she is polite about it.

This sort of toxicity doesn't make me angry. It makes me sad.

Let me guess... She went to college.

Here's a thought, how about we "heal" FIRST? Then all this obliteration would be unnecessary, yes?
