My greatest fear is of my grandchild being kidnapped by some sick, psychopathic pedophile pervert. When we go anywhere my eyes never leave her
for even a second and I always have a hand on her. Even when we're inside my house the doors and windows remain locked at all times when she is here,
and when I take her outside to play it is inside the fence and my Pitbull is with us as well as having my cell handy in my pocket. I guess I've seen
too many horror stories on the news and it has made me paranoid, but I can't help it.
This definitely seems like a more pertinent fear given the society we live in today, even though I'm sure this type of crime has happened throughout
history by the millions. I think we feel an awareness once we become a parent and are responsible for the budding innocence in those who depend on
But my instinct says "why?" Why do you feel such fear for this child? Is it a rational fear? Irrational? What is it based on? Is it a mistrust
in society? A mistrust in your neighbors? A mistrust in your ability to protect the ones you love?
Note- I'm not saying you need to answer, especially if it makes you uncomfortable. I'm just trying to analyze the emotion of fear.... You and
others sharing these thoughts with me is incredibly helpful and I really appreciate it.
