A War of Words

Whether spirited debate or healthy competition, passion emerges from the persistence of ideals.  It is crucial to remember that we have the option of raising our voices instead of raising our fists.  A constant battle of the minds was built into the framework of this country.  A continuous pursuit for truth, innovation, and equality has led iron to sharpen iron as ideas are debated.  In the heat of battle sometimes sparks fly.  The result has created this modern projected masterpiece, this city on a hill.  Discord can lead to discovery.  Metaphors that acknowledge the darkness of history, battles in our past, or life in the Wild West, serve a vital role in today’s rhetoric.  The internal struggle to define who we are will continue.  The fight for a better tomorrow will rage on.  We are in need of the constant reminders that the war can be waged with words.
