It might seem almost wrong to select a picture of a house destroyed by floods following Hurricane Katrina. How is that freedom from fear?
With each difficulty, hardship, trauma and tragedy, I discover an inner confidence and security that emerges as a result of surviving them, and at times thriving in spite of them. Facing resulting losses has a way of strengthening courage.
Norman Rockwell‘s Freedom from Fear shows young children being tucked in by their parents, the father holding a newspaper that has a headline with the words “bombings” and “horror.” War’s reality seems far from this room with its the crisp white sheets and innocence.
