Are You Frightened?



Are you scared? It’s okay if you are. We all are. Everybody was. Our parents were. Our Grandparents were. George Washington was. It’s okay.

But do you live in some rural area in the middle of the United States, some little town with like a thousand people and no stop lights? Are you absolutely convinced some terror group or whomever is gonna knock down your door and chop off you head? Don’t be, because they won’t.

I get it. We live in a globally connected world. Bad stuff is happening all the time, and God knows our media wants us to know about it. Because fear sells. And that’s what those 24 hour news stations are about: selling you stuff. Telling you about all the good things in the world just isn’t what anybody pays attention to, unfortunately.

So if you are feeling afraid I suggest you turn it off. Walk away from CNN and Fox News and MSNBC and don’t turn it on for a few days. Shut off the Internet. Walk around in your community. Say hello to people. Smile. It’s not so bad, is it?

I don’t know. I’m nobody to tell you what to do, but this sure works for me.
