The purpose of danger is to bring us close to the Almighty. Those who use a dangerous event to elevate themselves become closer. Those who fail to do so become further away from Him.
In time of danger, it is against the Torah outlook to peacefully go about your business. Not paying attention and laughing off a situation shows a lack of recognition of the Almighty's involvement in our lives.
I speak from personal experience here. I had several times of danger in my life that were life and death situations. I paid attention that they were messengers from G-d and choose to get closer to G-d. While it is difficult to say that it all ended up OK, they certainly were wake up calls that changed my life.

INTERACTIVE: The Journey of Marco Polo
I really like to travel, hopping from place to place, seeing natural wonders, witnessing what other people have built and wondering how they live. So the great explorer Marco Polo has always interested me, traveling in an age full of exotic mystery. And now I can recreate Polo's adventurous travels by using this incredible map. Passing through Turkey, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, China, Mongolia, Myanmar, India and many other nations, you too will see wonders, fascinating people and fabulous architecture, hear poetry, and even learn about how Polo's stories came down to us. Enjoy this adventure of a lifetime!
