How safe is "safe"?

Everybody talks about how safe it is in Dubai. Yet the murder of Lebanese pop singer, Suzanne Tamim would indicate otherwise.

The unfortunate singer appears to have been the victm of a well orchestrated murder plot. It is believed that her killer, alleged to be a former Policeman, was paid $2 million to kill her. If the local rumours are true, then she would have had an idea that the person behind it was capable of such an act.

One wonders why people who are in the public eye sometimes do not consider their personal safety. No doubt, denial has much to do with it. Some probably refuse to believe that they are that “important” to require personal protection, while others have difficuly believing that anyone would want to harm them.

I would hazzard a guess that the latter is what happened to John Lennon. Lennon was the epitome of peace and love, yet a crazed lunatic saw fit to shoot him in the back for no reason other than he knew it would bring him fame.

Sometimes it is detrimental to overthink things. Just because we have noble thoughts, does not mean that the rest of the world thinks in a similar manner. We literally need to always watch our backs.
