Perhaps we are at last coming to see that our most deadly enemy is fear. We are frightened almost to death by our ingenious hostility, which has wired the earth for genocide. We cannot conquer that enemy; we can only be delivered from it by love in the form of trust. Gandhi knew that the only safe way to overcome the enemy is to make the enemy a friend. Are we capable of receiving the gift on which our cure depends?
