      Thank you for posting the effects of anger. It can lead to an unhappy lifestyle, even death if not controlled. I pray people will seek help if they are unable to deal with this emotional turmoil.

      Faith Reaper and Teaches12345,

      Thank you for your comments. I appreciate every word!. As Faith Reaper says this world is anger driven... even the children are stoic and "mean-mugging" people. I don't understand it.....

      And, Teaches12345 you are so right... so man unhappy people because they are angry... I don't even think people know why they are angry.... Mad for no reason..... Help us Jesus!
