Just thought might want to consider some other facts. Ithink that you will find that the death rate from drunk drivers is a much higher known risk than dying from terrorist acts. So unless you are going to move to where there there is no alcohol and no cars, you are probably not going to improve your chances of a long life. Just the stress of the move could have an adverse affect on your longevity. Besides you have already survived living in a metropolitan area with one of the highest murder rates in the world. It turns out that you chances of surviving combat in Desert Storm was better than your chances of living another year in D.C. and that was long before terrorists were considered a major threat. The point of this diatribe is not to scare you out of the city, but to show that if you were comfortable before, the overall risk has not increased much if any. Try getting all of the facts before you make any major decisions.
