“How safe can we be? With endless potential threats of illness and injury, lurking and ready to get us from every angle, how can one possibly guarantee safety? We can't raise our sons to be bubble boys. Our daughters can't be kept locked away in towers. We need to embrace living; to balance the risk of danger with brevity. Laying out the language of what may lead to our inevitable demise becomes a theatrical display of mortality. We flaunt our fears as cautionary tales against what we cannot avoid. "Be safe", we tell each other, when what we really mean is, "I'm not ready to lose you ."
