It’s important not to imagine our world to be more dangerous than it actually is. Concentrating on the negative side of anything is depressing and a waste of time, especially as even normally, we spend most of our time worrying about things that never happen.
So in becoming a survivor, we mustn’t lose sight of the joy and wonder of life, and the world we live in. In any case, we’re all survivors anyway; but a brushing up on the specifics never did anyone any harm.
Our impression of danger is almost totally conditioned by media exaggeration. Newspapers don’t sell as many copies if they tell good news. A nice disaster is best for sales.
