This September 11th is the 10-year anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.  And that milestone seems to be drumming up some of the fear we felt a decade ago.

According to a new survey by the Chubb Insurance Company, at least one out of six Americans is nervous about doing certain things this September 11th.

16%would be afraid to fly.

32% would avoid being near a nuclear power plant, and 22% would avoid a chemical plant.

Since it’s a Sunday, which means NFL games . . . 18% plan on avoiding going into a stadium.

14% would avoid being on a cruise . . . 11% wouldn’t take a train . . . and 9% wouldn’t take a ferry.

But people DON’T seem afraid to stay in hotels.  And the survey also found that when people are choosing a hotel, they value cleanliness, price, and location above security.
