What We All Fear


What we all fear?

JUDGMENT.


What we all do at times?

JUDGE.


I walked into the grocery store for the first time today since our mask mandate was removed.

I had my mask crumpled in my pocket.


I was torn. What to do? What to do?

L-O-V-E


And I’d much rather live in a world where fear is gone and love wins.


It will be better for you. And for me.
