Eric, a retired Army Ranger, who patrolled streets of Iraq in full battle gear, has told me violence is a way of life all over the world and controlling or neutralizing it was once 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 for lunch, the inscription on the T shirt ahead of me in the order line, reads,  simply, “ Deliverance of Controlled Violence. ”

 I don’t know violence like Eric ,or this SWAT warrior, but I know 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 when you want to control human behavior.
