The word fear by its very sound and connotation evokes images and thoughts in each and every one of our minds. And it is a topic that keeps on coming up in conversation. And why wouldn’t it?
Fear is a prevalent topic especially when one considers the nightly news reports of ISIS in Iraq and Syria. It becomes even clearer when one considers the state of affairs between Ukraine and Russia. Then add to it the bombings and murders in other areas or stories. Sprinkle on top of it the conflict between Israel and Hamas and fear becomes even more alive. And then finally add on local stories such as Robin Williams and then it seems that there is no where we can turn for any form of good news. And as we look around us our collective hearts can just ache.
