Fear Neither

November 5, 2007
By Jeremy Grissom, Raleigh, NC

Understand that

Your name is not without meaning

Your deeds do not go unnoticed

And your thirst for knowledge

is something to treasure.

Remember that every man,


and child,

is in some way greater

than you and I.

Learn from them.

Know that the world is already lost

But it is always worth saving.

Never underestimate the power

of a word,

an idea,

or a gesture .

And know that in each of us

is the power to destroy our world

or to save it.

Know that a death in your sleep is just as much a death by nuclear arms.

And fear Neither.
