I recently received one of those emails that we all get from someone who forwarded this "important information" from someone who forwarded it to them, who forwarded it to.......and so on and so on. Anyway, after reading the "important information" and finding myself getting a bit peeved that this is what someone thought I needed to be aware of, I then got a bit more sympathetic (for a moment, I'll be honest). It is indeed terrible that some of you do live in places where you need to worry about things like what type of car is parked next to you in a parking lot or, if you hear water running outside of your house, at night, it might be a serial killer trying to lure you outside to add you as a notch on his(her?) belt...seriously? I read all the "warnings" and there were several and then I looked outside my living room and briefly wondered what it would be like to be that scared and wary and worried every day, all day. I not sure even when I lived in the middle of one of the largest metropolitan areas of North America, did I ever feel that vulnerable--I just didn't. I know, bad things do happen all the time and as many of you will remind me, they do happen everywhere. Well, shall we say almost everywhere. Yes, the 'news' is full of these things and yes, I guess I should check the back seat whenever I get in the car (and thankfully I now know what to do if there is someone there with a weapon -- PANIC) but really, my biggest concern is that now some N-U-T probably got the same email that I did and now has some real good ideas about what to do today. Am I in denial? I sure hope so because its real pretty here.
