Flying End of August Already Getting Stressed

I am getting  stressed already as I am flying out to Lanzarote on end of August. I am booked to fly home on Sep 11th. I have heard that a 10 year anniversary attack was/is planed. I know I am being silly and I know airports are on high security.   Is the security as strict abroad as it is here? I am always terrified of flying but this had made it worse this year.  I knew when i booked the holiday I was to return sep 11th, it was only when the media reported how it was the 10 year anniversary of 9/11 and mentioned that an attack had been planned that I got more worried. HELP!

Hi,  You are like me.  We are anticipating and building ourselves up into stress overload.  My fear, at least when it got the better of me, was when Pres. Reagan fired all the airport controllers while I was in Ireland.  When we landed in NYC, the stress was too much and I made my family take Amtrak back to our final destination in Washington DC.  Just think, every airplane, without the usual controllers, landed safely.  Our vacations are supposed to be fun, but we ruin them every time by stress.
