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, http://www.margotgran.com/, 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.
