I am grateful today for common courtesy. For the neighbor who hand-delivers my mis-directed mail, the people who smile and wave on my morning walk, the servicewoman who rearranges her schedule to accommodate mine, the friend who doesn’t remind me that I forgot her birthday.
Little things, really, but so important in these trying days of “alternative facts,” unbridled vitriol, and simmering hostilities. These little acts, always there when I look for them, remind me that at our core, most of us are basically decent, well-meaing and kind.
