Safe and sound

In the wake of the horrific Orlando massacre; the concept of safety has been on my mind. We are taught from a young age to not talk to strangers, look both ways before crossing the street, be aware of your surroundings, and so on. But is it all in vain, when there are wicked people in this world? Truly, we are never really safe. If you watch 15 minutes of the news it’s clear as day. The world is a scary place and nothing is certain.

I think it is important, though, to not live your life in fear of what may or may not happen. Yes, there are bad people out there but do not let the fear consume you to a point of no return. Do not live a paralyzed life. Do not let anyone stop you from celebrating the joy. Uncertainty is a part of life.
