What do history's most notorious despots have in common with many of the flag-waving, patriotic politicians of our day? Both groups rise to power through the exploitation of fear, which has become a societal plague. There have been widespread casualties. We need an antidote. Feardom offers its readers a much-needed immunization.
We raised almost $3,000 and purchased the supplies for the kits from Mandalay International. The kits ended up costing about $3 a pop. Tonight during Family Home Evening we assembled all of the kits and in a month or two they will be shipped off to Zambia with the help of Mothers Without Borders.
The pictures from tonight can be viewed on my Flickr page here.
