In these days of fear and gridlock, it is sometimes difficult to realize that there is always beauty if we open our eyes to what is around us. Yes, fear is a powerful emotion that can paralyze but for the most part, it is self-inflicted. Instead of living in constant fear we all need to realize that for the most part our lives and especially our responses to fear are up to us. Even when fear is real and necessary we must acknowledge that the response to it should always be action. If you fear something, get off your butt and do something to eliminate it.
And if all else fails, remember that “this too shall pass”. Believe it or not, we have had much worse times in our nation than we are facing now.
