Do you join crowds?

I love musical concerts or sports spectacles but I refuse to attend one. That is because I couldn't breathe in a crowd. Thrice in my life though I joined the crowd. The first time was when Pope John Paul visited the royal, pontifical University of Santo Tomas in 1981. The second one was the phenomenal gathering of People Power in EDSA '86. And the last one was the visit of Our Lady of Fatima at the Luneta in '87. Those three were instances extraordinaire. Much that I would love to be part of a crowd in shows or whatever, I couldn't. I couldn't breathe. Can you?

Hi Ms. E, I am fine with crowds. I enjoyed watching concerts and joined a fluvial processions but i am cautious about my surroundings. I have to stay in a place where it will be easy for me to escape just in case there will be trouble.

In a crowd there will be a congestion, generally crowd gathers for special occassions like musical concerts, festivals, carnivals, which are extraditionary events, and just because of crowd congestion, I dont want to miss those great events.
