We must be ever vigilant in defending ourselves from falling down

September 12, 2006 Leave a comment Go to comments

Perhaps a little perspective is in order after not forgetting yesterday. Wired tells us how likely we are to die from certain things. Falling down, hernias, etc. Oh, terrorism is on there, too. Second from the bottom. It was beaten by falling down, walking down the street, and driving off the road.

Granted, no one is ever going to fall down and kill in the six figures, which is quite possible with terrorism, but it’s worth realizing that terrorism shouldn’t necessarily be our number one concern.
