With some of the things that’s been going on lately, such as the Boston Marathon bombings, Sandy Hook, and the Aurora theater shooting, a lot of people are full of fear, and rightfully so.
My heart and prayers goes out to everyone affected by all those events, and I mean nothing but respect for them.
But, we can’t let fear control us, you know? We can’t let a few crazy people control our lives. I’ll admit, when I go to a theater, I still glance around, bring a knife in my purse (hey, better than nothing), and figure out possible escape routes. I still get scared when my sister goes to work as a fifth grade teacher.
But do you think the people who lost their lives, would want all of us to be afraid? I don’t think they would. I know if it were me, I wouldn’t want people to have fear. I’d want them to live their lives.
So, don’t let fear stop you from doing things. Just trust in God, and it’s okay to be a little cautious, just don’t let it control you. Fear is not something you’re born with, it’s something you learn, it’s something you take.
I’m signed up to do a 5k this weekend, and I’m going to do it. My mom called and was saying she didn’t want me to do anymore 5ks. But, it’s for a cause that’s special to me (March of Dimes), and I’m not going to let one crazy idiot stop me.
So, go to the theaters, kiss your kids/little siblings before they go to school, and go run. Don’t let fear control your lives, and don’t let the actions of evil people ruin them.
Be fearless, be strong, and carry on.@1 year ago
