|ATLANTIC WINDOWS PORT ELGIN|
We spent a very pleasant Friday morning hearing and talking about anger in our lives. The lady who talked about it had a very easy way of explaining something and discussing it with us. Everyone of us had to count off on our fingers while she was telling about some situations which might make us angry. I needed, in some situations, all my fingers and also the toes on my feet (joke). It was really interesting to hear what reactions inside and outside these situations caused.
I found myself smiling when she was saying not to be afraid. I think sometimes, "It is not fear of what happens in my country, it is not fear of being so far away from the family. It is not fear to have an ocean between my sister and me." But I can handle it. I try to be empowered with positive energy. If I can save some money from my very small salary to send a package to a young girl in Croatia whose parents were killed in the house as she and her sister watched that makes me happy. Or when I go to Frenchy's and buy something nice to send her, that makes a good feeling in my heart.
I also was surprised by my younger classmates thoughts of life. They were talking about the great things in life like: drugs, alcohol, and "freedom". I was surprised when I saw Travis was carrying another young boy. Was it a joke or playing? But then I saw he could not walk. When I asked what had happened to him, he explained about a drunk truck driver who made this happen and who had left him near the hospital. The young man had many operations and his chances of walking again are not that big. I also wanted to ask them if they would like to see their children using drugs. Or having health problems or abnormalities because of their parents using drugs. For sure not.
