The Price For Playing It Safe
In the latest edition of Dennis Prager’s “Fireside Chat,” he reflects on this past year’s newfound obsession with safety. The price for playing it safe at everything in life is not fully living.
Safe has become a value, whereas people now neglect to say bye, so-long or take care. Instead, their retort is “be safe.” Prager says the term has become more holy and he can’t stand it. “If I had followed the admonition my whole life, I wouldn’t be here in this fireside chat and you would have no idea who I am,” he says. “I never played it safe.” Prager explains his logic, plus adds his take on the new Juneteenth holiday and military wokeness.
