Letter: Don’t live in fear

This letter is for Jane Spaulding, Dick Fitzgerald and all the other folks who live in constant fear of people different than themselves, who remain huddled in a corner behind triple locked doors, desperately cleaning, recleaning and checking the action on their weapons, only occasionally rising to dare a peak out the window to see if “they” are coming.

Edward R. Murrow said the following, and I hope it alleviates your stress: “We will not walk in fear, one of another. We will not be driven by fear into an age of unreason, if we dig deep in our own history and our doctrine and remember that we are not descended from fearful men.”

This too from Mr. Murrow might help: “No one can terrorize a whole nation, unless we are all his accomplices.”
