we saw people running in fear –
fear of dogs,
angry, they speaking their fears in terms of absolutes –
“they all bite”
“they should all be shot”
“they should be shot immediately”
“you can’t fix stupid”
“there is nothing anyone can do”
“there is no cure”
“You can’t change them”
But we can change, we do it every day –
a frown turns upside down without us standing on our heads – even if only for a moment.
why would it be different about our fears?
Breathe, and watch us from a distance — and breath….chance a step closer…
are we so very dangerous?
well yes, we are, but only to Fear itself.
