What Ever Happened to Civil Discourse.

Auschwitz, Buchenwald, Bergen-Belsen, Dachau-Nazi concentration camps born of hate that began with incivility.  Hitler’s failed attempt to wipe out all Jewish people in Europe. Hate, violence, murder, terror- foreign shores, a century away, a world away.  

Columbine, Virginia Tech, Sandy Hook Elementary, Douglas Stoneman High School, Tree of Life Synagogue, Virginia Beach Municipal Center- civility has been diminished, repeated attacks on minority communities.  Hate, violence, murder, terror- our shores, our time, our city.  

Hampton Roads Weekly begins the conversation to explore solutions for our community by asking leaders and elected officials to voice their views.
