I am filled with Fear

Fear for my family

Fear for my friends

Fear for my neighbors

Fear for my students

Fear for my colleagues

Fear for my classmates

Fear for all people

Fear for our freedom

Fear for society

Fear of the injustice

Fear for the unknown

Fear of the unknown

Fear:  when will we ever learn to love everybody for who they are?

Fear: when will we ever learn to love everybody no matter who they are?

Am I filled with Fear because of all the hate and injustice in the world today?

What can I do to get rid of Fear?

Do I let Fear paralyze me?

Do I let Fear push me into action?

Do I have the power to take Fear away?

What action do I take?
