Folks, I want to tell you how lucky I am to be able to write you this evening. I was unfortunate enought to be the victim of an armed robbery. Let me tell you, no matter how skilled at self defense you are, nothing can prepare you for that. I have to admit, I am and was one of those people that felt "it could never happen to me". Well, it did and when you have a gun barrel pointed in your face everything that is more important than trying to be a hero flashes before your eyes. I can't even begin to describe the humbling feeling of helplessness. Why am I writing this? Well, first I needed to get it off my chest. Second, I want you all to be mindfull of those around you and take extra special care this time of year. People that are looking for the easy way to get money have no morals and don't care who they hurt to get it. May the Force be with you.
