The main problem as I see it, . . . we are kinda like the old caboose on the trains. Everything has happend and gone by when we finally come through.
Attempting to be "pro-active" is all well and good, . . . but other than security steps and situational awareness, . . . we have very little else we can do.
In the serenity prayer, the praying individual asks God to grant them the serenety to accept the things they cannot change, courage to change the ones they can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
I know I will be behind the curve when I realize I am in the pickle that requires firearms and/or deadly force, . . . therefore I use my training time to better my reaction time, . . . better my shooting skill, . . . I attempt to keep my body from being in places that could get it hurt, . . . and I am more or less constantly on the "lookout" for things that are out of place. Something that does not belong, doesn't add up, is less than optimal, . . . I'm outa here!
So far, . . . I've done this "pro-actively" for 65+ years and it has worked.
May God bless,
If you can breathe, . . . thank God!
If you can read, . . . thank a teacher!
If you are reading this in English, . . . thank a Veteran!
