What I fear
I do not fear new immigrants or mobs of liberals protesting.
I fear white-collar criminals who profit on the backs of ordinary citizens.
I fear the loopholes in our laws that allow the most fortunate among us to get away without paying income taxes.
I fear the deterioration of moral standards in our leaders.
I fear selfishness and greed.
I fear that my own comfort will make it easy to ignore the pain of others.
I fear that I will accept excuses and dishonesty if it benefits me.
I fear losing the courage to stand up to corruption and hate.
I fear that I will forget the sacrifice and bravery of the ones who allowed me to sit here and write these words.
