AN OLD SIN, A NEW WORD


Have you noticed that people are more and more angry then ever before? Consider the following…

One anger management firm stated that “one out of every five Americans has an anger management problem.”

According to FBI statistics, there were 23,305 homicides in 1994 and the most common reason was arguments occurring in the home (28%). Gang related killings accounted for only 7.6%.

Anger related violence is the reason stated for 22% of divorces of middle-class marriages.

Studies show that 79% of violent children witnessed some form of violence between their parents.

From 1995 to 2001 there were 1655 incidents of “air rage,” directing anger toward airline employees - according to FAA records.

The phrase "road rage" officially entered the English language in 1997 when it was first listed in the New Words edition of the OED (Oxford English Dictionary). Why do we need a new word?

In Atlanta, Georgia a two-year old toddler was shot through the neck by an irate motorist engaged in an argument over a road incident with the toddler’s father
