    This is another side of the coin of being rich and famous. The thing is not about the millions of dollars many celebrities spend annually for their and their kids’ security, but also the stress it is connected to. I better live much less lavish style and none know about me, but I am safe. Well, life is an unpredictable thing and everything can happen. I just hope every good citizen no matter of he/she is poor or rich is safe and sound.
