don’t let fear win

I cannot say that I have had an optimistic day. There is not much to add to what I wrote this morning concerning “election anxiety,” and we are still yet hours to go. But I read a quote by Philip Radtke, age 65, an Orange County native cited as a “seasoned voter” on www.advocate.com. He said, “If I could talk to myself at age 20, I would say, ‘Don’t let fear win.'”

That struck me, and although I am not quite optimistic on any front, it was a nice reminder to not be afraid.
