Sometimes we say or do something that puts us on a collision course with someone else, and a confrontation might seem inevitable. It is this moment of conflict - after it has begun but before it has developed into a full-blown battle - that students should reflect upon. At the heart of many conflicts, we find colliding ideas, values, and beliefs.
