When the pot boils over

How often do we see someone lash out in anger over an act they perceive as against them? In reading the news, we see it’s pretty frequent. Road rage comes to mind.

But what about the kind that stews for years until the lid flies off? That’s what police say happened with Joseph James Pappas when he killed Dr. Mark Hausknecht’s over his mother’s death twenty years ago. Twenty years is a long time to stew.

Who’s watching the pot?

More than seven hundred children are imprisoned by the government. In all likelihood, they will never see their parents again so what’s the plan? Will they receive citizenship someday? Will they be deported on their 18th birthday?

Now we learn that many are being given drugs to control their behavior! What will be their mindset? Thankfulness or anger? How long will the resentment churn before they begin acting out and what form will it take?

This could be a coming attraction on planes, trains or bicycles. Does anyone believe a wall will solve the problem?

What will we do when the genie comes out of the bottle? Because there won’t be any way of putting it back?
