March Madness #21: Your Biggest Fear

Truly, my biggest fear is unanticipated loss.

I’m afraid of the middle of the night phone call.  I’m afraid of the police officer at the door.  I’m afraid of the crash or the heart attack or the random act of violence that no one knew would happen until it was all over.

I try not to think about it too much, but that’s what I’m truly afraid of.
