Possibilities, and the fear thereof

Eloquence on the part of Michelle Obama about African Americans and the subconscious fear of greater possibilities that lurks in the back of our minds.  Food for thought, right?

Let’s really think about this, so that we can be aware of when we’re letting fear guide our decisions instead of being guided by our hopes.  Clearly, this applies to not just Black rock, but to so much that’s going on in the culture right now.

Hat tip to our friends over at Playahata for bringing this to my attention.
