    The loss of these wonderful people should make every one of us strive to be better. To be better in our private lives, to be better friends and neighbors and coworkers and parents. And if, as has been discussed in recent days, their death helps usher in more civility in our public discourse, let us remember it is not because a simple lack of civility caused this tragedy — it did not — but rather because only a more civil and honest public discourse can help us face up to the challenges of our nation in a way that would make them proud.

    @Peter – Excellent post! If we would keep in mind that the other person is also trying to do what they think is best (unless proven otherwise) then our disagreements would be fewer and our discussions more productive.
