Great piece and wise words. I remember well that somber era and it’s casualties.
What I got from this was: caution and caring, yes. Hysteria and fear, no.

Human Nature can be so awfully sad. Asian Americans are now being screamed at and attacked as if they caused the pandemic. It must have been worse than this with AIDS----but still, I guess FDR was right when he said: " The only thing to fear is FEAR itself."
Yes, fear and the people that traffic in it as a means of control and manipulation.
