An Arabian proverb states, “Four things come not back — the spoken word, the sped arrow, the past life and the neglected opportunity.”
We live in an inherently risky world, and that can make us fearful. It can even paralyze us. The media bring us news every day of calamities, disasters, wars and even the injurious acts of those whom we may have esteemed as friends and neighbors.
