When I was a kid, Grandma Ruth used to tell her friends (while I was within earshot),
"She's a peacemaker." Being religious, she would then quote from the Bible, "Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God."
After a while, I did start to think of myself as a peacemaker.
I wonder how my life would have turned out differently if she had told all of her friends (while I was within earshot),
"She's a troublemaker." And if, being religious, she would have quoted from the Bible, "whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of hell fire."
It's very un-Grandma Ruthy, that last bit.
