"Everybody has to decide for themselves what they are willing to risk to defend themselves, their loved ones, and complete strangers. But it’s wise to understand the possible ramifications of relying solely on others for that protection."
Wise words from Ikigai - http://www.ikigaiway.com/2010/the-perpetual-need-for-self-defense/
Words that apply to all of life - don't wait around for someone else to do what you should be doing for yourself.
And a belated Gung Hay Fat Choy to everyone.
