    What does it mean by "the best of us"? "the best of us" means the smartest/most capable/most careful/etc people. It means that something bad can happen even to those who did everything possible to prevent something bad happening.
    "us" doesn't refer to any specific group of people; it refers to everyone, not just to people you know.
    Thank you
