Too Scared to Die

In light of recent events, people are becoming more weary of traveling. They are torn between exploring new cities and staying home to avoid putting themselves in danger. When I went to Paris I could tell my family was hesitant about letting me go. They were scared for me. But I tried to explain that I will not allow these attacks to rule my life. I will continue to travel as I please. I will visit countries that have been targets in the past or may be a target in the future. I will live my life the way I want to because otherwise there is no point.

As I was driving to work today a familiar song came on the radio. It was one I hadn’t heard in a very long time and as I heard the lyrics “Never gonna live if you’re too scared to die,” I got chills. This. This is so applicable to life and society right now. Don’t let fear ruin your dreams and control your lifestyle because then you aren’t really living after all.
