I've seen some commotion about it lately. Your thoughts?

My response depends on where you see this commotion coming from.
The term memory safety keeps coming up in this conversation and I confess I don't really understand what it means, can anyone explain what is so unsafe about C/C++?
So the difference between a safe to an unsafe language when it comes to memory would be that in the case when I try to access an array out of its bounds the safe language would throw an error while the unsafe one would crash the app?
