please explain to me how we can teach our children to respect people, when ya cant even give you opinion without talking down or rudly because your view on an issue is different. This world will never get better if we dont lead by example and teach our children to be kind to others even if we dont think the same...

OP, I agree 100%. I do everything I can to teach my kids to be kind, excepting and not to judge people because you don't know the entire story. Unfortunately they are exposed to kids at school that do not practice this so I have to do my best on my end to help them become the best they can be.

peace in the anti-violence sense doesn't fit here? Wouldn't it be piece like... speak your portion? 

I'm just trying to save OP from an unnecessary ass ripping lol

No, it's piece. As in "speak out loud a piece of writing"... you might be thinking of "hold your peace".

No, it's speak your piece.  As in, speak your mind.  State your opinion.  A portion of something (like a portion of your opinion/mind).

The other idiom is hold your peace.  Meaning to hold your tongue, keep silent.

Speak your piece and hold your peace are two common idioms in English.

It's easy to confuse the spelling of piece/peace in these idioms, but there is a logic to the difference.

Speak your piece means "state your opinion or view." One sense of the word piece is specific to this expression.

He'd planned to speak his piece at the next meeting.

I encourage you all to speak your piece before we decide.

Several other residents came forward to speak their piece.
