That's the word of the month in the wake of the Arizona shootings.
One thing Americans aren't regarded for is being quiet.
I do'nt advocate quietism/silence. I do, however, think we can improve in our listening skills, and as a result we may be able to disagree with each other in a much more, how do I say?, professional way.....
We'll never point the blame other than the shooter himself, so let's not go there.
But let's use this as a stark reminder that yelling at each other doesn't make us stronger. We can do better, no?
