Fear and Hope?

Margot Gran (c)
In these terrifying days where there are real fears that we all have to learn to cope with - the missing people in Japan, the nuclear disaster in Japan, potential wars in various locations in the Middle East - I came across this poem, thanks to my genius artist sister, Margot Gran,, who always has something inspirational up her sleeve. I'll add the first three lines here, but highly recommend reading the whole thing...
Somehow when I read it I didn't feel so alone anymore.

Fear - A poem by Raymond Carver - American Poems
Fear of seeing a police car pull into the drive.
Fear of falling asleep at night.
Fear of not falling asleep.
