The Angry Boy

Janet narrates the fable of an angry boy who bashes nails into a fence and then, on the advice of his father, removes them one by one. The metaphor reflects the damage we do to another person by being nasty and directing anger at them instead of using it constructively and accepting that this is our anger and not the fault of anyone else. Even though we may apologise, we still leave a hole in them, a mark that needs to heal. We need to think before we speak.
