You're right that an event like this could happen to your kids "anywhere, at any time." So could a meteorite strike. I wouldn't bet on it, though. And worrying and trying to prevent a meteorite strike would be stressful and expensive. That kind of worry is a net negative for society.

I think that, relative to the circumstances of most people at most times, American kids today can certainly be considered "safe".
