Make An Unlikly Friend - or - I'm Showing My Hand
Fear divides us from each other. Fear deviates us from our own potential. Fear makes us make irrational decisions for the sake of self preservation, for example, I fear Hippos and will punch you in the throat if you make me hang out with one. I don't fear things that are commonly feared. I never have. Heights, snakes, driving in NYC, knives, guns, spiders, thunderstorms, blood, needles, dentists, God's wrath, midgets, weird food, Republicans, hotdogs from 7-11, they all make me shrug my shoulders and say, "meh." Sometimes, beer helps.
"Fear not, citizen, I'll save you!"
