We are safer today, more protected from pain and death, than previous generations of Americans. You wouldn't know it from the headlines or the paranoia that seems to have infected the country.

Be careful. But don't be paranoid.
Be realistic and remember to depend on the God we meet in Jesus Christ, no matter what.
