Fear and anger are a threat to justice. They can infect a community, a state, or a nation, and make us blind, irrational, and dangerous.Bryan Stevenson
My faith says “fear not” but when it comes to things that can harm you or threaten you then you must be smart, vigilant, and careful. Fear is healthy and can protect you from harm. Fear of the Coronavirus makes sense and can save your life. Fear the virus because there is not a cure or vaccine for it yet. Take care of yourself.
Fear keeps us focused on the past or worried about the future. If we can acknowledge our fear, we can realize that right now we are okay. Right now, today, we are still alive, and our bodies are working marvelously. Our eyes can still see the beautiful sky. Our ears can still hear the voices of our loved ones.Thich Nhat Hanh
Love casts out fear, and gratitude can conquer pride.
From “Little Women” by Louisa May Alcott
Where there is charity and wisdom, there is neither fear nor ignorance…St. Francis of Assisi
Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid… John 14:27
Fear and hate breeds terrible things. Hope and faith can create beauty. So why do we hold on to fear so tightly?
Stop being afraid of what’s unknown.
