"The probability of these bombings are pretty low. I used to live in Israel where stuff like this happened all the time. In my opinion, it's more dangerous to drive a car these days!"
David Gal, San Francisco
"No one can predict event acts of terrorism. The terrorists' actions are supposed to make us do things out of the ordinary. If I let them prevent me from carrying out things I'd like to do, that means they win."
Keehwan Her, San Francisco
"I refuse to live life afraid. You can be prepared but it shouldn't stop you from living life."
