Hot Air Balloon Death

In Philosophy, Short Thoughts, Stoicism

Yesterday, January 5th, there was an incident in the ancient city of Luxor in Egypt, where one person died while a hot air ballon was landing.

I previously wrote about my nervousness in the days leading up to this trip, and that so soon afterwards an actual deadly incident happens, makes me wonder if I was right to worry.

Of course, for any student of philosophy, the answer here is a decisive “no”. I should not worry, because whether the hot air ballon crashes or not is not up to me, and so I might as well take the time to enjoy the ride as much as possible, and leave the rest.
