Comment: You can always find something to disagree with. It is just as easy to find something to agree with. We have all met a few who are happiest in the midst of an argument. It is a real challenge to douse their fires of discontent with the cool, patient waters of positive gentleness. On the other hand, maybe we should just get into it with them and make their day – with, of course, kindness and civility.
