As an adult it is not anyone else’s responsibility to keep you and your family safe. The safety of yourself and your family can only exist if you’re willing to create it. Just because you’re a good person doesn’t mean you are excluded from violence. Walking around telling yourself the “bad people” don’t exist is a guaranteed method for failure. You can’t pretend that you are safe. You should never forget that EVIL EXISTS and you shouldn’t be complacent and get caught off guard. With all this said, life in America isn’t that bad for most of us. Most of us have freedom of choice and can do whatever we decide. So even though society today is for the most part fruitful and bountiful, why should you still avoid being nonchalant about keeping you and your family safe?
