13. Your Sacrifice Will Be Remembered
Not an entirely wrong belief, to be fair. If you’re in such a high-profile position, you get more public exposure and more easily become a target for people who are willing to go through with such a thing. That’s what the Secret Service and the FBI exist for, after all, to protect against such things.
Still, if you’re aiming to get such a position, it will always come with the risk no matter what. So in some ways, you could say this childhood belief was pretty reasonable and logical! Just needed a bit of nuance and fine-tuning to understand exactly how it works.
