      and thank you for the look at fear and the discussion on ways to handle it.  I hope we can begin to actually diminish some of the fear we Americans face each day - not the least being fear of bankruptcy and no healthcare if a person loses her/his job.  

      You know, I am listening to a beautiful sound bar in my room now & I have a wonderful desktop computer and great HDTV which is sometimes magnificent to watch - and I am juxtaposing all that (& other technological advances in our society) with the underlying fear that many younger Americans have about money & work & health care etc. due to the sad state of our economy - and it is so ironic that there is much beauty and wonder right there in our everyday lives - next to the big fears we have identified.  Supreme irony.
