I listened to an interview with a combat vet talking about his experience in war. He said, on the day of his most intense battle, everybody on both sides thought they were right. Maybe that is one of the most conflicting issues in any kind of warfare, whether in actual combat or in the conflict of ideas – we think we are right, and the other person or group is wrong. He went on to say, “No cause that’s built on hate will survive.” The foundation upon which we engage conflict of any kind will determine our emotional and spiritual survival. In these intense days, choose wisely.
