I think I'm likely in the majority when I say I'm not a "risk taker".  I don't think I'll ever try skydiving or parasailing.  It's dangerous.  I might get hurt.

Then again, I don't fear flying and I have taken a number of trips via jet airliner including stops in New York and Las Vegas.  

I was in New York years after 9-11.  I felt safe but the terrorist attacks were always in the back of my mind.  In fact, I walked around the area where the World Trade Centre's Twin Towers once stood.  I just had to.

I'm pretty sure I'll travel to Las Vegas again.  And, you know I'll be thinking about this past weekend's massacre.  Dozens of fun loving people were shot and killed senselessly and hundreds more were injured.  

Many of us will have reservations about traveling again but we can't be afraid.  That's what the terrorists and nut jobs want.  They want us to be afraid.  If their actions stop us from living life, they win.
