We're talk about stress. How you deal with stress. We hear tragic stories about people all the time who reach a breaking point. They're stressed they don't know how to deal with. And a tragedy results. Road rage people and a dead and injured. People get upset they get angry the year. Stressed out they are angry and I guess it's really as much about anger as it is about stress. They're angry it's somebody said something that they didn't like or they're angry that somebody disrespect to. And as guests to the point where they're inspired to get a gun and shoot and kill somebody. There are a lot of people in jail. Because they couldn't deal with their stress they couldn't deal with their anger. One day last week I was trying to do something nice for. The growing dating and and and her daughter and when I was trying to do that that's insignificant. But I was trying to do something nice and it was one of those mornings and everything went wrong. The little things. And I realize that in it in comparison to what goes wrong with other people these were little things but in it in -- in relation to my world that it was a -- it was a big deal at the moment. And I was really really stressed. I mean I was in the car. I was I was cursing I was yelling and I was screaming in my car. I was that angry. And I had took to find a way to come down and sometimes like I get to that point. And I just need to focus on OK this is temporary. It's not gonna last. And I need to just focus on how everything's -- everything's gonna work out. How do you deal with stress. Because that day if I would not the kind of person I am. Stress might have gotten to me. And I might have said something -- and I'm I'm Tony it was one little thing after another. But it really built -- and by the way as it is it turned out the nice thing that I was trying to do. For the grown dating and and her daughter. I could do it was too late because so many things had gone wrong I couldn't even fulfill my mission. And I thought -- just was trying to do a nice thing and it didn't work -- I wish really. Stressed. And angry. Not anybody in particular but just -- -- everything. How do you deal with stress. How do you deal with with those moments of anger. You know there are times when people get so angry. On the road. That they commit acts of broad range. Some people have followed some people into a service station and beat -- -- pulls a gun off. Because they were upset on on the highway. I realize that life is use is stressful. And we become very impatient with others I was impatient with the lady on the road I didn't do anything. But I was impatient to I just I was impatient with the stupidity of woman who was driving in the rain she's never lights on but she and -- flashing lights on. Driving in the middle lane and driving rainstorm and she's texting. So she thinks it's that dangerous to chance to put -- hazard lights why in the heck is this woman texting while she's driving. Mean -- just infuriates me but. I'm just trying to. Learn to relax. And -- -- Got a text from somebody earlier it's a dent school when you get stressed. Think about the moment you want to visit. In home yesterday. And if you just joined -- showing. Got an email from somebody wait last week to. Said to her mother says she aspired number one fan and -- she's facing. Traumatic health situation. And I should you know -- -- -- and say -- to Marcella I don't -- home yesterday to practicing harder effect we go to the picture up on our FaceBook page. At WWL radio it is great to meet missed out again effort and done on the trunk of CU -- currency again this week but. -- said just think about that won't. And maybe that's a really good thing to do think about those who were dealing with things that are so much serious more serious -- the moment that we're dealing. And we all have those moments and again we know the compared to others these are just minor things going on. But relative to our lives at the moment. You can sometimes get really stressed out and really angry. And for me I couldn't just put on music I mean there's music that I love to listen to -- really stressed I don't hear music. Music does it would be a good mood. But if I -- a good mood music will enhance the good mood musical fit the good mood which goes back something that I often talk about which is. The music reflects the move -- it doesn't make you do bad things for example. If you select certain kinds of music it reflects the mood to rent. I if you are not in love with somebody might guy -- -- just break up with somebody a love song that's the last thing you wanna hear but if you're in love. You want to journalists. If you would enjoy pressure with the comment on how you deal with strategy is there is -- -- little thing you do you might help somebody who's having a difficult time. Dealing with their stress to dealing with their anger. I've told this story doubts when piracy in in Denver. There was a woman. She threw her cigarette -- on the ground. And not only wish you littering at my apartment complex. But it was also a time when there were sent a burn ban on Colorado because of the threat of a -- -- parts. And nobody was allowed to throw anything on the ground or have picnics or have any kind of fire at all so even during a burn band. In addition to that she was -- So why is simply said could you throw your cigarette butt in the ashtray. What she got mad at me it had told the police and tried to beat her up which of course which ridiculous but unfortunately the cops believe her. Over me. Maybe I should've worn my leather jacket to meet with the police I don't know but it still wasn't fair anyway I had to -- and anger management classes it's none of my record or anything but I mean I had to go to court. And in -- in -- anger management class. I'm sitting next to people who like one guy beat up somebody in his cell. Which means he was already in jail and he beat this so late. What are ideal I totally she should disorder cigarette butt on the ground and I -- anger management class. And there were several people. There were several people vets were in the class as a result of road rage. And one guy follow somebody into a service station. Got out of his car. And beat him up in the into the that the gas line. So how was that you deal with stress. Here's a text that read so how can you handle stress or any problem. Pray. Have faith. Trusting god his word through the holy spirit he works.

The reason in how to you know whether or not the reason she had her flashing lights on was due to her headlights failure. And I know being higher in -- vehicle allow issues to see. So if she's having headlight was this was this was a a relatively new issue for me. I don't know for sure she was having headlight problem but if it's illegal to drive with you flashing lights on then. She should have got to have like fixed our she should be on the side of the -- anyway it was dangerous to drive with the flashing lights on no no headlights. And texting while she's driving so again eyewitness. I was.

Ross are talking about stress. And there are people in jail who couldn't deal with their stress that couldn't deal with that moment of anger. Social that really gets -- I can relate to this because last week there was a day I was just trying to do something nice.

My mission. I was really angry. And I just had to take a deep breath and realize that. Are right. There's nothing to do about that is happening this is not define my life this does not define who I am a Disco -- ago. -- or something you do to deal with stress. Because I see people stressed every single day you know yesterday. I didn't know exactly where to turn what it's going to home. And I decided I swerved over to make a turn and then and came back and I had plenty space to to turn back but the fact that -- came back in the -- the driver behind me through his hands up in the air and looked like he was. -- -- -- -- -- mean it didn't lead to anything.

Is enough for a while just driving as a challenge enough for you -- here's attacks criticizing me. For not recognizing a woman's ability to multitask. Because the woman is driving with -- flashing lights on no lights on her hazard lights and she's texting while driving. So are we now saying that women should be allowed to text and drive.

And a lot of them. -- jugular to downtown in the CBD. An unopened they've got the doors. -- Not that well. In in other parts of town it is buried his. Arm and you know when our quality. Well some churches now that -- chapels that are open 24 hours a day if you know where those are those. Those are good. -- that would be very calming now but what about the moment that you're -- -- obviously that's something that you can think about if you get stressed or angry. It in in a moment it worked in the car or at home. Is there something you do before you could get to the church that helps you. I hit. It's much I know that. Whatever I say I can navigate those words back. Once they're out there thought that I can never you know. Yeah I'm sorry enough to bring them back Ian. I'm really have done myself some real harm has some really -- thing people that shouldn't. So I'd note that those experiences. I can't say everything. And John not only can you not take words back but he certainly can't take a bullet back. You know now and and and that's that's got -- -- You know I'm not. Knock it you know it.

And I acted yet do it on every -- you look at the you know. It trouble you don't like it -- your computer. Connector. Built. I it's an interesting point Alex I'm on -- to -- the color show. Here is attacks to eve celebration. Was in order. Families friends and feelings of falling. Should have been considered this is within their cocktail party at the the grand opening 9/11 memorial museum in New York. I would not be so against it if nonalcoholic beverages had been served no dancing also if money made. I would be used for the upkeep of the memorial or families. But did not do use it for profit I'm not sure that it's it's being used for for profit and wanting to be talking about today is this controversy I've read about this last week. The day before the 9/11 memorial museum opened up there was a big cocktail party at the site. And -- volunteer grounds Euro and an advocate for 9/11 first responder said a to have a festive occasion. On family remains. Is repulsive and it's repugnant. And there are still remains there in an op Ed piece of foxnews.com. It was titled commercializing the sacred site of 9/11 is shameful. And it was harsh criticism of the cocktail party where people were drinking and laughing on what is basically. A great sites and it also there are items on sale we've got the video what's on sale of the 9/11 memorial museum on our on our FaceBook page at WWL. Radio and also on FaceBook is. A picture five missed Dunn and somebody were to go visit today yesterday and -- who describes herself as my number one fan and it was a delight to meets and missed on in a very very. A brief lady didn't even with all she's facing very very optimistic -- That's something to think about next time I get stressed. I'm started for Garland. We're coming back into the W well. Coming up in the next hour we're gonna talk about the and healthy food plan for school kids it's become a big political issue the First Lady Michelle Obama is behind it and that may be one of the reasons it has become. A so political. Soul why is it's a political talk about that coming up in the next hour. I'm student for garlic ledger with us here is a text that reads the and the ground zero cocktail party gift -- controversy brings to mind Gettysburg which has a gift shop. And -- grounds is still has mass graves of unknown soldiers. It really brings to mind what presently instead of the Gettysburg address. He said quote. But in a larger sense we cannot dedicate. We cannot consecrate. We cannot -- this round the -- men. Protectionist got a lot of text in -- jump around hollering -- the brief men living and dead who struggled here have consecrated it. Far above our poor power to and or detract. It's really great point. Here is attacks to it reads. The flashing lights or so other people can see from behind. I like it when I can see people coming. The flashing lights. Are supposed to indicate. To all drivers. That -- vehicle is stopped. Or severe endurance to traffic. This ego maniacal temptation. To put on your flashing lights. If it's raining or info log is illegal. And it's a mistake. Here is. Checks to. That tonight is from a truck driver in heavy rain you should have on your hazard lights because it helps. To see the driver in front of you is it hard rain hazard. No it's not a hazard purse say I guess it's hazardous driving in in hard rain but. Again that you that the hazard lights are. To me this is -- this is a small thing but it's just a further indication of how. How many rules of the road are not totally. -- understood and in addition to boom in addition to driving -- with their hazard lights on this woman was texting while driving. In a thunderstorm that she thought was so horrific should depart on -- hazard lights. But she's texting while driving. And that just doesn't make any sense to me. Here's a text hazard lights on vehicles or more prevalent on city streets because there are many vehicles who's driving lights don't work. So this year it has put -- hazard lights either way it's illegal and hopefully we set the record straight on this I'm scoot in for girl and we're back after the news.
