The television show Revenge is hugely popular and I admit I have a guilty secret. I like it too. Still, I want people to understand that in real life, words and actions really do cause harm and this will never be undone by revenge.
Instead anger will consume you. That is why I joined Bloggers for Peace to help me overcome my anger and to continue working towards true forgiveness. Click on the link to find out about this month’s challenge and click on B4Peace to learn more about Bloggers for Peace.
I have written so many posts about teaching kindness and to educate others to help them avoid being hurt.
Please teach your children well and if you need help doing this please read the post I wrote for Special_Ism.com on the topic. You might also share the wise words of Frederick Buechner if you have an older child. I believe that if we all join together we truly can change the world to a more peaceful place for all.
Of the seven deadly sins, anger is possibly the most fun.
To lick you wounds, to smack your lips over grievances long past,
To roll over your tongue the prospect of bitter confrontations still to come,
To savor to the last toothsome morsel both the pain you are given and the pain you are giving back …
In many ways it is a feast fit for a king.
The chief drawback is what you are wolfing down is yourself.
The skeleton at the feast is you.
