CHAPTER 12DIVERSITY AGREEMENTS

After the first few months of deadly trench warfare during World War I,Christmas Day, 1914, dawned bright and cold, freezing the sea of mudbetween the enemies. Allied and Axis soldiers spilled out of the trenches andspontaneously gathered in the middle of No-Man’s-Land, exchanging gifts,playing soccer, and rediscovering their common humanity.

—David La Chapelle, Navigating the Tides of Change
