A Message from Mr. Gilmore

With the United States reeling from the effects of the Great Depression, on March 4, 1933, Franklin D. Roosevelt advised Americans in his first inaugural address "that the only thing we have to fear is fear itself-nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes...''

Fear, unfortunately, is a part of our lives, but it should be minimized whenever possible.

The website Statistic Brain states that 60 percent of things feared will never take place; 30 percent of things feared happened in the past, so they are beyond our control; and 10 percent of the things feared cannot be changed.

My youngest son has spent the last year in Beijing, a city of approximately 25 million, teaching English and living in less than ideal conditions. Yet on my recent visit to China, he told me there was no place in the city where he was afraid, no matter the hour. I realize at age 23 we were perhaps all braver and less fearful than we are later, but his attitude did encourage me.

My father, 84, recently suffered his second heart attack, but when I visited him, there was no apparent fear, only optimism.

It occurred to me that my son Seth is at the beginning of his journey and that my dad is toward the end of his sojourn, yet fear, the nameless, unreasoning, unjustified type that FDR spoke, of does not control them or paralyze them.

But it often does me. Maybe it does you, too.

Fears about the economy, our children, relationships, disease, global warming, war, aging-the list goes on and perhaps you can add to it.

But I am committed to dismissing fear from my thinking whenever possible.

2 Timothy 1:7 states "For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power and love and discipline.

As the 2014 school year begins, may we all embrace power, love, and discipline, not fear.
