A Primer

     What happens when two individuals who know no bounds keep escalating a dangerous situation? I read the newspaper, listen to the words, and wonder if there’s any way to shut down the incendiary talk. Words do matter. Body language does matter. Walking on thin ice always means the possibility of a crack.
     A crack may be more than words. It may shatter the surface and cause cataclysmic results.  We have moved way beyond wars fought by the Calvary. We don’t need anyone using words as barbs, threatening, and indulging in dramatic bravado.
     There are others who know history and recognize that diplomacy is far more prudent. It appears that it is easier to wear the mantle of a bellicose leader than to shoulder the responsibilities of a diplomat.
