I am with you there sharon I love to fly and have a cousin flying home soon and is afraid for him..This has to stop, the president really needs to get these airports to tighten there belts of close them down if they going to let terrorists in then they don't deserve a business, this is serious stuff..

I have only been on a plane once and that was when I was little. I slept through the whole thing. I wasn't afraid to fly until 911 happened. Now I will not get on an airplane at all. I would rather ride a bus or a train. :)

SharonJohnson, And deprive myself the experience of going beyond the horizon and have a ball of a time? Not a chance. Honestly, I do not how you would want to look at it but here's a few if you would allow me to elaborate or rant. For one, what are the odds that you will step on a plane that will crash or bombed? I just do not see that being noticeable especially when airport security and maintenance are being watched and audited. From another perspective, there's one saying about security. Frankly, in this world that we live in, there are just so much uncertainties that we can just die in a blink of an eye starting from a motor accident right down to some natural disaster like a bad storm or an earthquake or even some fatal illnesses. All of us will die some time or another and whilst we are still alive and kicking, I think we should just live it to the fullest and passionately, too. I just do not see any cowering to be a better advocate here. “Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.” - Helen Keller
