Fear Creeps In

July 5, 2016

Last week’s bombings at the Istanbul Airport are easy to gloss over. Here in Orlando, we’re still reeling from our own home-town tragedy, after all. And Istanbul is, geographically and culturally, a world away. But not for me. I spent 10 mind-blowing days on a business/cultural excursion to Turkey in 2013, flying in and out of that very airport multiple times. During my trip, and upon my return home, I remarked to friends how safe I felt. Everywhere. But for how long? When I look at “that” list, I’m now struck by how many cities I’m connected to — Paris, Boston, Charleston, New York, Lafayette, Istanbul and, of course Orlando. We can’t cower to terrorists. But I do wonder, how long before the fear starts to creep in.
