ADVANCING YEARS

Safe, wherever

"'God is everywhere. His protection is as close as one's consciousness.'"

Though Statistics Say crime is down, fear for personal safety is up. Elaborate alarm systems can be purchased for homes. Parking garages sometimes offer escorts to take you safely to your car. Some young children are taught to be wary of strangers. Periods of extreme heat or cold bring warnings, especially for older people living alone. In short, personal security is a major concern for many.

What can someone do to improve safety? Many of the warnings issued by public safety experts are worth considering. And, certainly, if we know of someone who may need help, we should keep watch. But no individual holds the key to our safety. God is a more dependable protector than any system ever devised by mankind.
