Antonin Scalia was a controversial figure when he was a justice on the United States Supreme Court. As one of the most powerful men in the country, he made decisions that were cheered or jeered, depending on one's political leanings. Whatever his political opponents said however, no one doubted his sincerity and conviction in either his personal or his public life.
Soon after his death, I found this article that touched my heart and made me think twice about how I treat people.
Justice Scalia's Great Heart

-Are your actions consistent with your beliefs?
-Perhaps try role playing this situation. Sometimes our initial reaction is not a good one. By role playing, we can practice living up to our deeper beliefs. This is not being insincere--it is practicing for the test so we can pass it when it comes.
