To confront your fears,
Don't behave like the Ostrich
Who will not face them.
He wishes them gone.
He sticks his head in the sand.
It's dark.  They've left.  Right???
Grab fear by its scrawny neck
And begin to squeeeeeze.
Make it say, "Uncle."
You have its neck in your hands.
You are in control.

I fear that Faye is right and that we have a tendency to bury our heads in the sand but then maybe those of us that see won't end up with our heads in the sand.
