Sklover’s Thought for the Work Week

Sklover Working Wisdom

“The enemy is fear. We think it is hate, but it is fear.”. Mahatma Gandhi. Fear is the most easily aroused human emotion. It is always there, lurking inside us. It is human to feel fear when events threaten us. But fear is never necessary, because hope, courage and faith are always there, too. Those among us who promote fear are not our friends, but our truest and most dangerous enemies, because they seek only to lead us downward to division, hatred and ruin.

Thankfully, there are a number of cities that offer relatively easy commutes.
