Church sign I saw today.

I saw a sign in front of a church today and I thought of you all!

It said:

Conflict is inevitable.
Combat is optional.

What do you think?

Thank you Scoop....I thought of you all tonight as well while watching Invictus...Nelson Mandella (Morgan Freeman) said, "forgiveness liberates the soul, it removes fear, thats why its such a powerful weapon".

conflict is inevitable...and yes, combat is optional, and so silly...really, yet, many men have died in combat.

I saw it differently than that.  I saw it that we should expect to have conflict with different people, but should NOT choose to fight with them over it.  Of course, it works both ways, they should not choose to fight with us either.

That's great Scoop!  And so true.

I had this up on my wall for a long time, written on a snarky work email I received, as a reminder to myself that I didn't have to be a jerk just because someone was being one to me.
This too shall pass.  All is well.
