This week’s media and legal events confirm that man’s greatest emotion is not love, but fear.
Fear of people who are different from us, whether due to religious beliefs or their choice of who they want to love .
Fear of letting go of the past, whether due to how a state was treated after the Civil War or of the beating taken on a bridge in Selma.
Fear of being attacked even at the risk of losing one’s personal liberties.
The question is, is there enough love to quell the fear or is talk of love merely rhetoric?
