I, along with many North Dakotans, am disturbed by the inappropriate disruptions by protestors and discourteous, insulting behavior of Democratic senators on the committee.
Do Democrats want the developing chasm between Americans to continue to widen? Or do you, Senator Heitkamp, value unity and respectful dialogue? This is a very important question for me, personally.
Having attended contentious hearings in the past with my husband, I am very aware of the potential for angry, insulting behavior directed at me during these hearings — especially if I ask a question someone might not like.
I remember an angry, packed, out-of-control hearing in Billings that frightened even my husband so much that he decided against openly testifying. He handed his written testimony to a staff person and we left.
I am a human being. I get hurt, I bleed, just like everyone else. Courteous behavior in the public square used to be normal and anticipated. I want to know that manners and civility are not only expected but insisted upon at public hearings of any type, anywhere in this country.
If you are refusing to stand up for civility and safety at a hearing inside a Congressional building in DC — at the hearing for a Supreme Court Justice no less — how can I expect you to stand up for my safety at hearings across the country?
Will you stand up for my safety? Despite several attempts to schedule direct meetings with you over the years, I have yet to have even one meeting with you. In lateI actually felt ridiculed by your DC staff when attempting to meet with an aide. Senator Heitkamp — please show your mettle and take a stand for what is right.
Please show us that you value all voices as you say you do — and make a statement against the out-of-control behavior currently exhibited during the Kavanaugh hearings. Please make it clear that respectful, considerate behavior — including from members of the committees — is expected at any and all government hearings.

A child's age is one of the most important factors in considering how to begin a discussion on any subject dealing with prejudice, discrimination or, more simply, the things that make people different. Reducing prejudice and discrimination occurs most successfully when majority and minority individuals interact, have positive experiences, form personal relationships, engage in open and truthful discussions with each other, and develop a personal commitment to reducing prejudice and discrimination.
