Dangers are all about us. Homicide is the leading cause of death among black teen-agers today. The drug culture has spawned violence throughout the land as the addict resorts to any means to find the funds to fuel his addiction.
If we do not feel personally threatened by these dangers, we worry for others—our spouses, our children, our friends and neighbors who may not be as protected as we are.
Uncertainty of the future gives birth to still other fears. Will we have a job tomorrow? Will Russia revert to communism and once again polarize the world into an armed camp? Will the funds be found to open school next year?
