I drive at an average speed of 30 miles per hour to the railroad station each morning and just catch my train. On a particular morning there was a lot of traffic and at the halfway point I found I had averaged only 15 miles per hour.
How fast must I drive for the rest of the way to catch my train?

I am the fighter of good, believer in bad. I help the weak but soon make them sad. If you use me in the right tone, you see all the beauty and kindness I'm shown but yet, if you take me and use me in spite, you shall make me mad, for the words are not right. What am I?
