We have been touring Alaska by planes trains and automobiles. There has been much news on the 9 yoa girl and the tragic accident.
In thinking of this I believe there are risks in this world. We are always managing risks in whatever we do. Driving our cars is managing risks, as is flying, hunting, boating etc. In all these things we have an element of danger and in most of these we do them so much we no longer think about risks. We are in a very safe society, probably too safe, as we no longer consider risks or consequences for our actions. This was a regrettable accident and we should let the loss remind us that life can be lost quickly.
