IF YOU HAVE BEEN FOLLOWING THIS BLOG SITE, you may remember a series of posts on preventing and/or surviving the dreaded Active Killer (Shooter) in your church, synagogue (temple), school, or workplace. Since then (about four years ago), there have been at least a dozen mass killings in the United States.
TODAY (November 5, 2017), during services at a Baptist church in Southerland Springs (sp?), Texas, a score of miles from San Antonia, a gunman opened fire in the middle of (church) services, killing at least 27 (the number may grow) and wounding another 24. The maniac fled the scene and was intercepted by police and eventually shot & killed.
What’s important in this context is how we can process this catastrophe and the seemingly unending flow of insane mass assaults on our well-being. I mean, come on, we still must deal with our everyday lives. Sending our children to (religious, elementary, middle, or high) school, or entering our workplaces. Or, what about enjoying a concert or ballgame (especially after the Mandalay Bay Hotel in Vegas where over a 100 Country Western fans never went home)?
So, in the next few posts, I will cover (again) some key survival skills, tips on recognizing semi-clear signs that something bad your-way comes, and what you might do to prevent, escape, and/or prevail.
I am talking about all the “Soft Targets” out there that, more likely than not, you will eventually be entering and exiting probably on a daily basis. Aint it about time you developed my Hard Target Strategy (or, Winology)?
Until then, stay safe.
