Fear is a cornered animal, no longer docile, lashing out to protect itself

Suddenly the attacker drops a bomb on it to stop the aggression.

But the fear doesn’t evaporate.

It splashes, staining the heart and soul of everyone in the blast zone.

And the stain won’t come out.

It’s a virus spreading fear far and wide.

So the fear lashes out again, and the bombs keep exploding.

The fear spreads.

We have often let fear take the lead, make the choices, drop the bombs.

The repercussions ripple down the generations.

Maybe this time we could try something different.
