Voice: Don't fall hostage to terror

October 25, 2001

President Bush recently called the Taliban, bin Laden and other terrorist cell groups around the world evil ones. Indeed, they are the most perfect example of evil people that I could imagine. However, we must not let them terrorize us.

A comforting message from the book of Psalms is, "Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I shall fear no evil, for thy rod and thy staff they comfort me." The Bible does not say we will experience no pain or not have enemies, but it does say that God is with us through these times.

By giving in to fear, we are playing their deadly game. It is no surprise that a media company that produces tabloid magazines is the first to experience an anthrax scare. Cannot you just see the tabloid headlines in every checkout lane in every grocery store and retail store in America? NBC news headquarters has been targeted. Why? To keep the terror alive is the obvious answer.

We must not live in fear. Our lives are much like that of a driver who has been driving down a wonderful road without a lot of bumps and not too much traffic. We have gone along this road of life oblivious to the fact that there could be danger. We should not be in fear, but aware of what is around us. Each one of us can help the different safety agencies by being alert. Having a job to do makes each of us feel we are part of the solution of rooting out the evil ones amongst us.

God bless my fellow Americans. Keep the prayers heavenward and the Grand Old Flags waving, and we shall prevail.
