Incidents and Anger, Coda --- Day 2/141

Walk: Not yet (so grey and windy..)
Distance: 0, long home practice

Got a follow up email from my journalist yoga student who was recently shot in New Orleans.  I'd commented about feeling angry and upset seeing the video of the incident.  His response:
Anger, I have found, is not usually a productive response, even to terrible injustice; it can get in the way of the real work that's needed--which is doing something about the injustice.
Probably an appropriate statement to consider on this Memorial Day.
