His body, broken for mine, mending my own brokenness—fragments, softly, melding back together, making me one again—if for a moment. There was no mandate from military personnel for such a thing—in fact, it appears to be precisely the opposite.

He wipes a little of the crust off his eyes. It was as if to be with her was to feel the presence of God Himself.

Condescend to the crowd: If you, on a regular basis, condescend to the people you speak to, you are a danger to yourself and others, and need to check yourself out of the game immediately.
