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.”
