Selfishly, I wish 09/11 had never happened so I could continue to have my govt sponsored head-in-the-sand mentality. The wife and I had fluid plans to visit Ireland next year. Neither one of us are 100% sure we'd have been willing to take the risk. Whatever risk percentile we were at, it is definitely shrinking.
Yeah its a tough balance, wanting to experence new a different places but at the same time wanting to keep you and your family out of danger.
Limiting what you do in life because of fear is no way to live.
