"Even in the use of force when provoked respond with patience." TiB! 

"Even in the use of force when provoked respond with patience." 

33 Degree Mason, running about 30 miles per week, late 50's now I reckon, became my mentor my Freshman year, then Lieutenant now Captain Price, 40,00 troops in his command during Desert Storm, led the NSU Police into the thick of this huge fight that broke out in the middle of what we used to call the Sweat Box, a party in the small gym every other weekend or so, he entered the mayhem so calm, cool, and collected, tossing big body dudes left and right, not a wince, not a flinch, no hesitation, zero indecisiveness, full intensity and in full control, established order out of a 15 man fight in a matter of moments.  The officers flanking him were ducking and apprehensive as they entered the fray but not Price.  We used to talk for hours, several times a week, trading books and paradigms.  He chaperoned for me when I organized a charted  bus trip to the Million Family March.  He's a military and strategic genius and he taught me, but he would say we taught each other, a great deal over the years, yet, that night, chairs, fists, elbows, and bodies flying all over the place, he demonstrated how even in the use of force when provoked respond with patience." 

Sincerely yours,
