I Will Fear No Evil?

"Are you frightened?" Aragorn asks Frodo (Lord of the Rings I).
"Yes," says Frodo.
"Not nearly frightened enough,"says Aragorn, "I know what hunts you."

Somewhere between consuming terror and nonchalance the rational person finds a way to deal with the "monsters". The Psalms say, "I will fear no evil." And yet, we must respect the enemy who wants us dead--fear them, respect them.

Boston Herald columnist Jules Crittedon writes of the line we walk in this post-9/11 world.
