Not all fear is evil

When I visited my cousins in Arkansas years ago, we arrived back at their place one afternoon to some horrific news. A neighbor friend had shot himself.

Pointing the gun at his head, he had said, “What would happen if this thing was loaded?” He didn’t know it, but the gun was loaded. He pulled the trigger and killed himself in front of a bunch of his friends.

I’m not saying guns are evil – I’m saying not all fear is.
