We are becoming a society overrun by anger. It’s in our homes, on social media, in our politics, schools, workplaces, and communities. We have faced the challenges of COVID, experienced grief and depression, dealt with job loss and financial crisis, and become a nation and world divided based on political beliefs. Through all of this, we will have witnessed a significant rise in the display of anger. What better time than now to remind our fellow citizens of how destructive anger can be. R&R started the Crusade Against Anger® because we were motivated by our desire to bring awareness to negative behaviors associated with anger. We are concerned that today’s climate of anger will negatively impact future generations and it will leave us broken, bitter, and divided.
Our goal is simple; bring awareness to the masses in relation to how angry we have become and the destruction we are causing because of our anger. We would like to get this message in front of as many people as possible.
We have a couple of directions to achieve this. First by asking that you purchase and wear one of our t-shirts to show your support for the cause. Next, would be to request that positive interactions be posted to social media using #CrusadeAgainstAnger, instead of the negative displays of anger we always see. We’re so accustomed to seeing the bad things, so let’s counteract that with something good.
We also would like to display positive messages in as many public places as possible and educate everyone we come into contact with through seminars, public events, and social media about how bad behavior associated with anger has negatively impacted our families, communities, countries, and the world. We want people to learn how to identify and handle their emotions before allowing them to get out of hand. We also want people to learn how to be accepting of others who are different from them, be it in lifestyle, culture, religion, political beliefs, or sexual preference.
We are confident that significant exposure to positive images and messages and conversations in and around our homes, communities, and schools can create a communication stir that will enable us to replace the consistent negative messages that are currently drowning our society with more positive dialogue.
