Thanksgiving Message: Overcoming Fear with Gratitude
Timothy R. Lannon, S.J.
President, Creighton University
When we look at troubling circumstances around us, often our first reaction is fear. This is frequently our response to change and the unknown as we almost immediately imagine worst-case scenarios.
