We live in an age of fear and
anxiety. Ominous portents surround us; terrible threats make us
tremble. Only diligent
awareness can protect us. Be alert! Look for the
signs. These are for real!
Be forewarned! Our lives are full of real and present dangers. Things
happen that we do not expect, and sometimes people do things we would
not have thought possible. Warnings help us do what we need to do and
avoid what needs to be avoided.
