Being Fearless in Love II

In today's Huffington Post, Arianna Huffington writes on fear: "I've written a lot about fear and fearlessness, and how fearlessness is not the absence of fear -- it's the mastery of fear. It's all about getting up one more time than we fall down. Has any public figure embodied this more powerfully and compellingly than Hillary Clinton?"

We master fear through love. Hillary Clinton focuses on her love of politics and her love of leading. This we have seen since her early college days as an activist. Surely the presidential process has not been easy and I'm sure as of late it has been more difficult not to succumb to fear. But Hillary presses forward in love. She moves day to day in determination, refusing to be fearful, in love and hot pursuit of the presidency.

Huffington says "it's all about getting up one more time than we fall down." Another wise saying reads "a wise man (or woman) falls down seven times and gets up eight." God bless Hillary Clinton for her great love, displayed in her fearless actions to run such a formidable presidential race. She has fallen down and yet arises, giving countless of young women the idea that Yes, We Can! For this, I am sincerely grateful.
