Violence Intervention Project
We all have feelings of anger from time to time – anger at fellow co-workers, or parents, or spouses, or siblings, or outside forces we can’t control. What are today’s options to disperse those feelings?
Years ago my parents gave my brothers boxing gloves to release the built-up feelings of anger toward each other, or to work out those feelings on a punching bag. At my high school, the principal put an old car behind the school. Students were encouraged to take out their anger on that old, beat-up car. Students brought guns to school in the back of their pickup trucks so they could go hunting after school. There was no fear of the students using those guns on each other.
As Bob Dylan famously sang, “the times, they are a-changing.” That saying came into effect during the Vietnam War era along with marijuana and other illegal drugs. One college professor taught that marijuana was safer than caffeine.
Times again are a-changing with the use of social media. Now people can bully on Facebook without identification. Does constant bullying by a partner or someone on Facebook cause anger to boil over?
Today each person may be dealing with alcoholism, drug addiction, bullying by an abusive family member or job loss. Illegal drugs, addiction and the proliferation of guns, can determine how a person deals when anger boils over.
Today society encourages running, walking or any physical activity that is not destructive.
