Anger has been used a lot lately in the news...It seems that it is a word that could become politically incorrect or at least come to mean something much different than what Webster intended. 
an-ger n.  
  1. A feeling of extreme displeasure, hostility, indignation, or exasperation toward someone or something: rage; wrath; ire 
  2. Obsolete. Trouble; pain; affliction
The American Heritage Dictionary Of The English Language

However, anger can be used for good, as a motivator; to propel one into Positive action as seen in a new Hallmark Hall of Fame movie, The Courageous Heart of Irena Sendler.  (How many wonderful movies and misty eyed commercials have we viewed from Hallmark thru the years!)  Hallmark will air this movie, their 236th presentation, on Sunday, April 19th on CBS.

Irena died last year, May 12, 2008.  She was nominated for the Noble Peace Prize in 2007!
The following is a petit documentary on Irena, for a bit of a background.   Remeber the movie THIS SUNDAY! :)

Isn't she beautiful? I love her so much and am so thankful for what she did. I work with some wonderful people throughout Poland and the Baltic states. As I continue with my small business of Polish Pottery and Houses of Courage, I hope that many know and understand the history and the story that comes with these art pieces. Thanks for sharing this. I will pass it on in email to my 1000's of customers. I know they will enjoy it also.

Thank you for sharing this! I will certainly do more research on her life and legacy. People like this inspire me greatly - in a world with a lot of hate and anger. Love - unselfish love - laying your life down for others... is a beautiful testament to loving others as our creator loves us.
Beautiful Post,
all my love,
Amy
