Living in fear of anything is a terrible waste
of what could be a great life.

Not in the spirit of derision or whining self-pity,
but as a remedy, a miracle drug, that will ease your pain,

with laughter at your predicaments,
thus freeing your mind to think clearly toward the solution
that is certain to come. Never take yourself too seriously.

as well as their once-avowed enemies,

of death in war and civil conflict."
