The possibility of war, terrorist threats, and uncertainties about the economy all contribute to anxieties about the future. We've heard commentaries about the tensions from a university professor and the wife of a Marine. Today, we offer another view from novelist Alexs Pate. His most recent novel is West of Rehoboth. He says he's afraid that war will not be followed by peace, but by more war and tension.
