A long time in speaking up. Fear of people thinking I’m too radical. Too shallow minded.
Freedom of speech in hand, I want to say this: “why are tourists allowed to go to hostile countries?” I think that, until situations change, no one should be allowed to travel into a hostile country. It is a sad thing that Otto has lost his life. But a very foolish thing for our government to allow tourists the ability to travel into a hostile country. We are asking for trouble. Guidance is needed. Why are we setting ourselves up for failure, for loss of life?
We have to show wisdom and discernment. Is this a good experience or a bad one? Are my actions in keeping with their culture, or am I putting myself (and possibly others) at risk?
Be careful Americans. Know what you’re getting into. We have to take care of ourselves!
