Civilization

Rating: 4.6
Civilization is a word
That is so often heard
In contexts
Both evil and great
It like freedom
Has been abused and distorted
In its ideal sense
Civilization is a way of living
An attitude that affords
Equal respect to all
It is the golden rule

Civilization is just what you can make of it. Being civilized means to me treating individuals as you would like to be treated.

We have to respect every society and their way of life without point fingers on their face. Respect they beliefs without imposing our views on them. This I'm on behalf of our African kin. Great to say this.

Spot-On, Raymond...Take the 'Z' in civilization & turn it on its side...Then, take the dot off the'i'....Now, read the word... Civil 1 Nation....Perhaps that was the original cryptic concept in the origin of that word...Sure didn't end up that way, tho' did it? ...So, now you can put those 2 letters back where they were...Oh yeah...And the 'Z' now stands for ZOO! LoL! (Really isn't runnh tho') Enjoyed this, Raymond...As always...Solid Quilling ~! FjR~
