It’s a dangerous business going out your front door.
~J. R. R. Tolkien (1892 – 1973), In The Fellowship of the Ring
This quote is actually quite true in today’s society. Danger is everywhere in this world, and sometimes you can never be sure about which people you can trust. With all these murders and kidnappings coming up in the news lately, it is scary to think what the world is coming to. I know these crimes have always been around, but it seems to me they are happening more frequent lately. It is frightening to think that maybe somebody you know and trust could be heading down the path to such a crime, because most of the time, the criminal is someone you know. It is becoming so dangerous to be alone, and it might not even be safe to walk around a college campus alone or at night. It truly is dangerous walking out your front door.
