Stripling

I refuse to live in fear. I said this to a friend who kept fear-mongering about the situation our world is in right now and what it might become.  And I kept repeating this mantra until he finally stopped. Constant negativity is counterproductive, whether it is about what our new leaders may do or what outgoing President Trump has done.   

It is true we face uncertain times.  Anytime there is a big change from what has gone before, there is doubt and unrest. And I don’t think we are fully informed about much of what is going on.  How can we make a judgment when there are so many conflicting opinions bombarding us from every side? Each entity thinks there is no truth except their own.  So, what are we to believe?
