Oh goodness, I am so terrible at picking my battles that I am not sure I am fully qualified to answer this kind of question. I do know that I would fight to the death to protect my son. That is an abyss that can stare back into me and which could never win while I still live.

“Whoever fights monsters should see to it that in the process he does not become a monster. And if you gaze long enough into an abyss, the abyss will gaze back into you.”
~ Friedrich Nietzsche
