It does seem more precarious. Considering we used to hide under school desks for A Bomb drills when I was in grade school, I'm not sure if really is more dangerous or not. I do know the less news I read or watch the better I sleep at night. :)
I try not to listen to the news, either, but sometimes that is impossible or whatever.
Each day is a gift.
That's very true, we could all be gone in the blink of an eye.
