Nothing strikes more fear at the Birdfeeders than the appearance of a Hawk! The Birds will scatter in a panic when the Hawk lands on the telephone wire above the feeders. We all have fears of some kind, whether it is the fear of public speaking, the fear of heights, the fear of spiders, the fear of bridges, or the fear of flying. The List of fears we have can go on and on. No matter who we are, we have a fear of something. How we handle our fears is of great importance. If we panic, the outcome may not be good, just ask the birds at the birdfeeders. If we face them, the fears still may remain, but they may be overcome. Fears must be faced with sound judgement and the assessment of the situation. Not everything we face with fear will have a bad ending. There are times when it is wise to run, there are times when it is wise to face our fears. Sound judgement and assessment of the situation is key. Avoid your fears when they will lead to life threating harm, face your fears when you with sound judgement can overcome your fears. Whatever you do, do not fear "FACING OUR FEARS!"
