“A situation wherein the forces of opposing factions meet, cross, or clash” – Merriam-Webster

Walking a straight line is easy. There’s one direction to follow, and as long as you are moving forward, you are making progress. But what if there was suddenly a landslide across that path? What if the sky darkened and you couldn’t see? What if gunshots rang out on either side of you, as bullets whizzed by your face? What if snow fell and your sight was blurred and your path disappeared?

Do you stop for each obstacle in life? Or do you press on down your own path, regardless of the crossfire?
