We are inundated with stories that are meant to create fear in our lives.
From the nightly news telling us stories of all the evil happenings to the water cooler gossip about who did what, we know this earth can be a scary place.
A few months ago, my wife and I went to Frosty Oasis, a local ice cream parlor in Muskegon. Normally we will walk to get ice cream but this night we decided to drive over.
While in line, we saw multiple police cars fly down the road and turn just past where we were standing.
Come to find out, there was a shooting across the street. A young man had been shot.
Fear Creeps In
Reading online, I saw many people were now scared to let their children go to the skate park where the shooting occurred. These parents feared their children may be the next victim of a shooting.
