181. That's right.
Sometimes it is our enemies from without who try to reduce us with fear. And sometimes it is something within ourselves that brings fear to the surface. Our genetic wiring tells us to avoid potentially "high risk" situations.

As Americans, we need to recognize that fear is our enemy right now. Fear of this, fear of that, fear instilled in our beings by the mass media and by the morally impaired "administration."

In the gospels, Jesus uses the exact words that Buddha had used: "Do not be afraid." He also taught that we need to let children serve as our leaders. King recognized this. And the truth is that the more children attend a demonstration, the less likely there is to be unrestrained violence.

You are doing the right thing in teaching your children about life. I know you would not risk their safety. It does this old man good to hear that you are bringing them. Your children have a smart, good and decent parent. Thank you.
