So what are the lesson learned from this incident?
According to the magazine article:
1) Accept the possibility that you may be shot.
2) Be prepared--prepare and train for the worst case scenario.
Make sure the training puts you under pressure so you can react under real life stress.
3) Be vigilant.
Be aware of your surroundings, if you see something irregular, like being followed by a car, then be suspicious, raise your level of vigilance and take action.
4) Never give up.
5) Have something to live for.
Good points, but the author leaves out a lot of the "how to--nuts and bolts" of how to accomplish the above.
