How do we reconcile passion and civility?

How to remain true to the core beliefs, yet maintain a civil discourse?

Is peace pulled from bloodshed?

It is easy to be kind and benevolent with enough food in our stomachs, and water to drink.

The true test comes when we  have compassion as we wrap the tatters of our society around our shivering bones–

when we lay across the chasm to make a bridge for the enemy to cross to safety, and resist the

urge to maintain the cycle of revenge.
