FBI and Homeland Security Issue a Joint Intelligence Briefing warning Americans that the violence that is occurring overseas could spread here to the Homeland. So what can you do as an ordinary citizen to protect yourself? Stay alert to what is happening around you. Each of us have a keen awareness of our environment. As we walk around our neighborhood and in our workplaces we see things from time to time that seem out-of-place. We notice something that was not there before. If you run into something like that you can easily ask someone else to confirm your suspicions. If you see suspicious activity or suspicious packages report that to law enforcement officials.
Trust your instincts and don’t worry about being wrong. If you are wrong fine, no harm no foul. But if you are right and ignore things it could come back and bite you. Don’t give regret an opportunity. Take action. The life you save may be your own.
