16. Probably even my
best friends on DU are aware of my habit of thinking that I know a heck of a lot about many issues. Certainly, my family has been subjected to it. And I say that only half-jokingly, for our attitudes, our words, and even our silence can be forms of aggression and, indeed, violence.

If I have helped people to consider this issue in a larger or slightly different manner than they previously have, or if this OP encourages "peaceniks" to step up -- either here, at home, or at work -- then we have all benefitted. Because, after all, we are all in tis together.

Thank you for your response. You have brought a smile to my wrinkled face.
