Eric, a retired Army Ranger, who patrolled streets of Iraq in full battle gear, has told me violence is a way of life and controlling or neutralizing it was his living.

When I talk with a man who has had to take another human life, regardless of his reason, it makes me listen closer.

At  Dion’s Pizza, the inscription on the T shirt ahead of me, reads,  simply, “ Deliverance of Controlled Violence. ”

 I don’t know violence like Eric ,or this SWAT man, but I know about words..

You only need to get a few cattle to head for the barn to get the whole herd moving in the same direction.

Sweet talk and glorious words beat violence any day for controlling human behavior.
