I was an Air Force brat, who went in the Navy. I always felt protected. I lived in the Philippines and left a month; in 1983, before Benigno S. Aquino Jr. was shot and killed resulting in a revolution. I lived in Panama and left about four months; 1987, when there was a power struggle between Colonel Roberto Díaz Herrera and Manuel Noriega causing riots and untimely the Panamanian war in 1989. and there are the countless times when someone would try and hurt me and like a boomerang that person would be hurt. call it God, the universe or karma , I am protected.
