Ask yourself this question: What is one of our great flaws we possess human beings? Stop and give this a minute of serious thought. My answer: our ability to think that nothing is going to happen to us. That we are somehow above it and that the rules don’t apply to us. We somehow think that the stories we watch, read, or hear about in the news could never happen to us. I am as guilty of this as anybody out there. I often think about this, but then go about my business as normal, even if something has happened to someone close to me. Well, surely this can’t and won’t happen to me. This is what we think. I don’t know why this is but it needs to be reversed. My perspective needs to change, and I’d like to propose an alternative mindset.
