This video is a few years old ... if you have the time it is a humorous look at the tendency we all have to cling to "safe"

Yesterday we met with a person of faith that kind of wanted to be convinced that Haiti is a safe place for us to raise kids.  She was struggling with our decision/plan to move back in a few months.

Because safety is something she highly values, it felt a bit frustrating knowing that there was very little we could share to gain her understanding and the best thing to do was to just politely explain it as succinctly as we could.   The problem is, I've never figured out how to verbally explain this without offending the person that believes it is totally irresponsible to risk anything.

I might start carrying Chan's video around with me.
