Home and Personal Security in a Changing World

Aug 18, 2007
It happens more often than you or anyone else may realize. Sadly enough our world has become more violent and frightening to many people including myself, my family and my friends. I'm sure you know at least one person, if not yourself, that is fearful on a daily basis of going to a mall or traveling to a particular location due to the rising risks assocated with being "out and about" in what once was a fairly safe world to live in. Sad? Yes, it's sad. But more than that it's just life as we are coming to know it over the past years. It's not going away so we all need to be more on top of what is happening and what could happen in any "normal" or typical situation in our lives.

Following is a short list of occurances that we all are made aware of through the media and word of mouth on any given day. They are frightening but with the right tools and information we can all be a little safer in our homes, cars and personal space.

A family sleeps peacefully in their beds while one or more armed intruders sneak throughout their home robbing them of their valuables and goods. Staying alseep could save their lives, but sadly enough that isn't always the case and we are made painfully aware of that on a weekly or nightly news program featuring these type of attacks.

A person awakens to an unusual sound in another part of the house. They go to check it out only to find themselves fighting for their lives and to protect their family as a would-be-robber pulls out a gun or other weapon to use in order to avoid being recognized and caught. A struggle ensues and the guy with the best weapon wins in this unfortunate situation.

A woman unlocks her car door in the parking lot of a local mall or grocery store. As she unlocks and opens the door a man comes alomst out of nowhere and forces her back into the car and attacks her where no one notices. The victim is left to deal with the assault and possible robbery as well. This could change her entire life even though it only a few moments in time.

I could go on and on with further accounts but I think you get the main idea. Whether at home or in a public area, we're all only a step away from being the latest victim of an assualt, robbery or even death. From small rural towns to huge cities - it happens everywhere and sadly enough it's getting worse day by day in this quickly changing world that we live in. Individuals and families are now forced to find ways to protect themselves and their valuables in case of an attack. To live without this knowledge and by not putting safety precautions into place we are setting ourselves up to be harmed in some way at the drop of a hat.
