IMPORTANT STATEMENT- Keep the following 2 words imprinted in your minds-SITUATIONAL AWARENESS. For your safety, this is probably the most important 2 words coming into the holiday season and really, these should be on your mind 24/7 all year long. Most folks bury their noses into their cell phones, even when they are driving and bad things can happen.
PAY ATTENTION to your surroundings while going shopping and returning to your vehicle along with driving to and from those locations. There are many evil people out there just waiting to ruin your day and possibly your life buy hurting you or someone in your family. If you see suspicious activity or feel you are being followed, CALL 911. YOUR SAFETY AND THE SAFETY OF YOUR FAMILY IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN TEXTING SOMEONE. More on this subject in later posts.
