People want someone to follow. It’s human nature. They want someone to make them feel safe. And people who feel safe are less dangerous, more productive.
Our children are at risk from so much in this world. We can never protect them from all of it. But when there’s something we can do to make them just a little bit safer, we do it.
I’m not safe anywhere. Every corner I turn, I don’t know what’s on the other side. I don’t know who’s on the other side. It could be the cabbie who’s gonna drive me into the East River, okay? It could be the FedEx woman. It could be a talk show host who was my best friend.
