The world is a crazy place. The holidays always make me feel that even stronger. Its a time when everyone is moving at full speed, and it seems that it gets easier and easier to lose sight of the things that are important.
For example, there are deaths caused on black friday, from eager shoppers. Fights break out, and its not good. Just last week, there was another school shooting in Denver. Fortunately, it was stopped before too many people got hurt, but still, another shooting.
How can we feel safe at school, at home, on the road, at the mall? Is it even possible? Sometimes I wonder if we should all stay indoors, lock ourselves away in our homes and home school our children. We can stay in touch with others using the internet and face time, and we can order delivery groceries and goods directly to the home.
But that doesn’t stop intruders or burglars from getting in. So maybe the next step is to hire a professional locksmith to come in and lock up all your doors and windows.
Is that how anyone would want to live their life? But how about the alternative, living your life in fear that your child may get shot with a bullet when they go to school tomorrow?
Here’s another good way to feel safe. Does it work? Who knows. It seems like if someone wants to break in to your life, your home, or your vehicle, that they will do it no matter what. But it can’t hurt to make it more difficult for them to do so. Isn’t a criminal more likely to steal a television that is behind an unlocked door, than one behind a padlock?
