Nothing to fear but fear itself

During World War II, amid all the turbulence, Eleanor Roosevelt, First Lady of the United States, had this to say about fear, and it still rings true today:

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face…The danger lies in refusing to face the fear, in not daring to come to grips with it…You must do the thing you think you cannot do.

That’s the message I leave with you today, on this beautiful sunny day in June. May you all have strength, may you all have courage.
