counselor working with children because it was times like these that made me wonder if I truly enjoy working with children. A co-worker stepped in and did something I didn’t expect at all, in a calm voice in the still of the night he said “Anthony how about we go get a snack?”. Anthony, this co-worker, and I proceeded to sit down and talk through some things that were going on in Anthony’s life that I never expected him to have to deal with. Looking back, the key to the whole situation was in fact Love. In times of unimaginable fear we have no greater comfort than to love people. For it is only through loving people that fear dissolves because love drowns out fear.
It is commonplace to hear someone say that hate it the opposite of love, but when the two are compared side by side it because clear that fear is a more proper word than hate. Love naturally puts the focus on other people whereas fear naturally puts the focus on ourselves. One might say that they hate something or love something else but that is not the context of those words that I am using. I believe that it is possible to live fearfully or to live lovingly. Living in fear drives a man to constantly be self-focused and whenever something bad happens this person will often lash out at what they see as the source of their pain. This in turn means that living in fear leads to people hating lots of things, hence the confusion of words.

For some people, the word “retard” is one that should at no time be used as a term of…

upon those who believe in love at first sight, or those that
believe they are in love after only a few days or weeks. They believe it takes time for someone to
fall in love, that only with time can a person fall in love so intensely and greatly. It has become
ever so much easier to get a divorce after 1969, when a was law passed stating that infidelity
charges or physical abuse did not have to be present in order to get a divorce (Evolution). This
would eventually lead to people not caring as…
Good. Did anything interesting happen? Not really. We had Sloppy Joe 's for lunch.
That last time driving towards Lexington though, there was only the sound of the cars whizzing past us and the honks of horns when traffic got too heavy. Even in the hotel room, late at night, I could only hear people setting up their stands and the clanking of utensils and grills.
I went to sleep to the whispers of my mom and Liv, finally breaking their silence only when they thought I was long gone.
