When we are well, we can greatly contribute to our community, performing work as citizens. One shared responsibility that we all have is to be civil (respectful or polite) in our words and actions towards others. When we are kind and aware of others’ needs from a community to a global basis, we open the door to a better future of mutual understanding, safety, and respect. We can find simple ways to make a difference in the lives of others.
