Protest

By Betty

Is anger or protest the answer to personal or political problems?

Anger never solved any problems. Anger requires energy better spend listening to the problem. Most problems have two sides. It may be both sides are wrong. Listening may spark a discovery-a notion there may be another solution. Sometimes a new day change the appearance of the real problem and a possible solution appears.

Speaking up with an opinion is a constitutional right.  The problem comes when speaking up on top of others becomes a riot. Then, often no one is heard and too often someone is hurt. And no problem, political or personal, is solved.

Perhaps the answer is so obvious and so difficult, people ignore it. Treat one another as you wish to be treated. Then lead by example.
