Be Not Afraid

I'm not afraid of black men.
I'm not afraid of refugees from the middle east.
I'm not afraid of white men.
I'm not afraid of the homeless.
I'm not afraid of Muslims.

They are all people.

And, generally, if you treat them with love, then they'll be kind to you in return.
Sure, there are always the exceptions, but who wants to live afraid that this one person might be the exception to the rule?
I don't  because if I live out of fear of the exceptions, the violent, the thief, the liar
then I lose out on the chance to love.

There are two ways to make the world more secure:
Be kind.
Build community.
Nothing else really works.
