>Anger Potpouri

Anger is a negative emotion, while love is positive. But anger can be a catalyst for good, too. When anger is shown to get others to understand the pain someone is feeling, good comes. The logical result may be deliverance and help for that person, and if that be the case, anger helped. But as we mature we begin to understand that our pain and grief is not unique. Everyone suffers, for to suffer is the beginning of growth. And to show anger at the least provocation can be the end of a relationship.

It was Gordon B. Hinckley who so eloquently said it in a song, “There is no death, only change…

THERE IS NO DEATH
J. L. McCreery

There is no death! The dust we tread
Shall change, beneath the summer showers
To golden grain, or mellowed fruit,
Or rainbow-tinted flowers.

There is no death! The leaves may fall,
And flowers may fade and pass away—
They only wait, through wintry hours,
The warm, sweet breath of May

Though life become a desert waste,
We know its faintest, sweetest flowers,
Transplanted into Paradise,
Adorn immortal bowers.

They are not dead! They have but passed
Beyond the mists that blind us here
Into the new and larger life
Of that serener sphere.

Excerpts from The Best Loved Poems of The American People
Doubleday, 1936, p. 87 reprinted here in memory of the families of those who lost their lives in Burma and China.
