" So, first of all, let me assert my firm belief that the only thing we have to fear is...fear itself — nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into advance. In every dark hour of our national life a leadership of frankness and of vigor has met with that understanding and support of the people themselves which is essential to victory. And I am convinced that you will again give that support to leadership in these critical days."
~Franklin D. Roosevelt March 4, 1933

I have highlighted the last section because we need to come together as a nation and support those that will lead us, whether it is a local, state or national figure in the government or private sector. This is not a time to shun science and warnings of the experts because of a gut feeling. Assembled in these pages are resources, that I have tried to keep clear of a political agenda (other than the gut swipe)
