When I was a little girl I was traumatize by the film In Cold Blood. You see when it first was aired on network television WMT (now KGAN) chose to show it after 10:30 P.M. My brother Steve and I snuck into the living room to watch it and of course came into the movie as the farm family was being slaughtered. It took a boyfriend forcing me to watch the movie in 1991, to realize that it wasn’t the movie that scared me as much as it was the stuff I let be associated with that film. I had convinced myself that what happened to to Clutter family was going to happen to my family. It didn’t of course and that kind of thinking hurt me from seeing the movie for what it was. We often see things that aren’t there and ignore reality. I do that and I have tried to realize I do do that. Its tough to do. When answers aren’t right in our grasp we turn to books that lead us to those answers one such book for me is The Book of Secrets by Osho. Osho was a spiritual teacher who for me makes sense in so many of those bigger questions. Its not the fear within but what creates the fear and what leads the fear to be released. The ICPL has many books that can lead to answers even though many of us are unaware there are questions. They are found in the 200′s. Also read or view In Cold Blood and see it for what it is. -Terri
