The backronym of FEAR: “False Evidence Appearing Real” turns us away from error thinking, refocusing us on what actually is real.  Fear, a nameless, unreasoning, perhaps unjustified response to a real or imagined experience, can so totally distract us from what is true that we unknowingly give it the power to control our lives.   It can take on a life of its own, paralyzing individuals or mobilizing mobs.  President Franklin Roosevelt summed it up with, “the only thing we have to fear is…fear itself.” He was declaring war on the Great Depression and the devastating psychological impact it was wreaking.  Every day, we have the opportunity declare “war” on what is not true by rejecting fear-mongering.  We are the ones we’ve been waiting for to be peace makers and truth-tellers.  And your choice is?
