Dorothy Thompson, regarded as the First Lady of American Journalism and at one time considered to be the country’s second most influential woman (after Eleanor Roosevelt) said, “Only when we are no longer afraid do we begin to live.” As much of a hotshot as she was, I have to disagree. I think it’s when you do have fear, when you are close to danger, that’s when you know you are alive. The senses are revved up, you are on high alert, the juices are flowing. Man, you are on fire. That’s living!
