Productive Anger

It’s time to share this week’s Words for the Week. This comes from a 1993 pro basketball game.

Many years ago during a Knicks-Bullets playoff game, one of the Bullets came up from behind the great Walt Frazier and punched him in the face. Strangely, the referee called a foul on Frazier. Frazier didn’t complain. His expression never changed. He simply called for the ball and put in seven straight shots to win the game, an amazing display of productive anger.

The moral of the story is simple. You can get huffy about situations and lose focus, or you can stick to your game plan. It seems Frazier gave us a great moral lesson as well.

THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: Never give up on anyone. And that includes not giving up on yourself. — Dieter Uchtdorf

  1. Cancer is my deadly foe,
    offering no quarter.
    He wants all I am and know
    to add unto the slaughter.
    He thinks he’ll one day win
    because the flesh has limits,
    and he’s been on as did begin,
    counting down the minutes.
    My body is not made of steel,
    but my heart is more,
    and he won’t see me kneel
    before him on that fatal shore.
    Hearken, death, for when we’re through,
    me and God are burying YOU.
