 Who are your scariest demons? Mine are the people who scare me in the courtroom, in the conference room, on the news, on the ballot.

Those are my scariest external demons, but my scariest internal demons are different. Or maybe there’s only one: fear. But not fear itself: fear of the world’s pain and suffering. Or more accurately, fear of how it might feel to step into the midst of that pain and let it touch me. 

I mean, I can step in and not let it touch me. I have great defenses. But letting that pain touch me? For me, I think that’s the scariest thing.

And so, maybe it’s time to go there. Because if that’s my scariest thing, I’d better.

Are you coming?
