Think before you speak!

When I was younger the phrase was "think before you speak".

Now lets use this logic in self defense especially if you are trying to deescalate the situation before it becomes physical. Think of what the other person is thinking, why are they doing what they are, this is referred to as empathy. Understanding where the other person is coming from can guide you to say the right thing which calms the situation down and prevents escalation of the situation.
Not getting in a fight means everybody walks away...

9/11

Paying tribute to American Heritage on significant days like today are examples of the unspoken spirit thats makes our communities become part this great country. Paying tribute so we don't forget nor do our children.
