The problem is, if a person wants to harm or kill you, no one can stop them. You can't hide or shoot every bad guy.
My Dad always said this about bad things " YOU", must be living wrong. In that bad things happen for a reason, the same as good things happen for a reason, nothing happening for no reason. In simple terms "WE" don't command, the "TEACHER/DIRECTOR" commands this play we call life. You can walk in the valley of the dead if you have faith, if you walk with fear the bad guys will tear you up. My DOG is a good example, if you enter my drive way and you have fear DOG will meet you at your door and keep you in your car, if you have no fear, you get out, don't stop and look at DOG and dog lets you pass with no harm.
I do get your point, but I also realize we are untouchable "IF" we believe and then we don't live in fear because if we die today, we are free to go back home, so we can't loose. If you are hurt, it was meant to be, you are never going to surprize GOD any day of the year, what will be, will be and he less fear you have, the less troubles you will have.
Many elderly people are so sickly that they fear everyone and everything, the healthy have few fears, they seek to know thy enemies so they can be avoided, not feared. "IF" I feared chem trails and all the population control methods, I live like so many sick people I have met by e-mail and phone that HIDE in their home with tons of equipment to protect them selves, to me they are fools and true victims of their own fears.
I use allot of caution and we country kids all know how to handle any gun made, enter any Amish home and you will see 20 guns of all calibers, no one dare trespasses upon an Amish home when not welcome. My boys all learn to use guns, to me when you know, then your safe, the kids I fear are kids that can't handle guns and the first time they find one they accidentally kill the kid beside them.
My dad never locked up much of nothing all his life until he used drugs for pains, then they started locking everything, I have zero doubts the more drugs/vitamins/metals you take the more fears people have. This is easily seen in these people hooked on silver water, vitamins and other harmful things. Having a mouthful of dental metals can make for one nightmare in older age.
Today I had a old customer and he admitted, for the first time in his life he can't control his fears and angers and he knows this is aging him, he said 10 years ago this was not a problem. He has a mouthful of dental metals and refuses 90% of what I have ever suggested.
