The analogy of sea comes in here for me too. We are sailing uncharted waters, never knowing what shoal or reef will bare itself. We are well seasoned in all forms of navigation, piloting and "rescue". A strong hull and good judgment well always bring you to a safe harbor.
Even if it is the one you never leave. When things go wrong they go wrong geometrically. Currents, tidal flow and weather take a life time to master. We are here to assist you, to listen to ch 9 and 16, to position that safe water buoy dead ahead of you, to be strong enough to keep you in port rather than second guess the weather fax. Knowing and doing this, we thank ourselves. That is enough for me.
