Disagree with respect

Thank you, Marc Thiessen, for pointing out how France’s President Macron showed us how to respectfully disagree (“Democrats could learn from Macron,” April 27, 2018). We seem to have lost this art.

We could get so much more done for the good of the country if we could do the same. Surely we would also see less violence if both Democrats and Republicans modeled respect and decency for our young people as well.
