As the United States continues its swirly ride down the toilet bowl of history, I started looking for good visuals on what the OSS reader of today might face tomorrow. This process made me think of Mexico City and other “South of the Border” areas that our cities are beginning to look like. I put a couple of clips here (Credit youtube.com) that are pretty realistic in our view. Both involve kidnappings (a real threat in bad times) and both have something to offer:
The Man on Fire kidnap scene, shows that you must be mentally prepared to “fight through”. Getting injured does not mean everybody stops!
Staying in the fight!
The Scene from Taken , (Which should be mandatory viewing for anyone with Teen Daughters simply because of the methods the bad-guys use to gain the trust and abduct the young women!) will make you evaluate how your children can be better prepared to deal with this situation. None of us are Liam Neeson characters, but all of can better prepare our families to deal with violent encounters by equipping them with training, tools and most importantly proper situational awareness to survive.
Would your child be prepared?
