USAF Lt Gen Silveria urges ‘civil discourse’ or ‘get out’
Lt. Gen. Jay Silveria, superintendent of the US Air Force Academy, addressed the cadets this week on the issue of hate and racism. All Americans should hear this. It’s solid, level-headed advice for the whole country.
This, by the way, is not a new idea. When I first heard it, it began, “Do unto others ….” The general took it a step further when he urged “civil discourse” and said, “If you can’t treat someone with dignity and respect, then get out.”
