You might remember my blog a couple months back when I was talking about the 3 hero’s on a train in Paris.  They all got medals and accommodation’s and where honored by the Prime Minister of France including staying at their capital building. It was  their great act of courage and selfless act of taking on an armed gunman that saved a whole train from a rein of terror, and tragedy. That was amazing in most peoples eyes.

Now we fast forward a few months and Spencer Stone, one of the 3 who helped debunk the train massacre, was out with his friends having fun.   Somewhere along the way an altercation started between his party and another party of Asian gentlemen. No one is for certain what exactly happened but all that is true is Stone was stabbed and is now in critical condition at UC Davis Medical Center. While it isn’t linked to termism it is proof how the world can go from being supporting you, to turning against you. From Hero to Victim in a matter of moments. Proof this is a uncertain world we live in.

Good news: Today,  the 15th of Oct 2015, Stone is released from the hospital.   Wish him all the best and hope he recovers ok.   It is crazy how fast you can go from Hero, to Victim and back again.

I might mention I even became a victim this weekend, and  I work in Security.  I had my truck window broke out and Items stolen. We need to wake up America for this world is uncertain, and you never know where evil or trouble might present itself.

I am an Ex Army vet who served in the National Guard for 12 years. I have worked closely with some amazing security professionals, in a vast array of different work environments and scenarios. I am also a NRA Certified instructor, and proficient in fire arms, and self defense. On top of that I am well experienced in the technical world as well. I live my life by the motto " There is no knowledge that isn't power" and try to learn all I can. As well I feel that knowledge is only good if you pass it along to others so they can benefit from your experiences.

    It may be very frustrating to have to battle through cyber bullying, but cutting off your teen from it all is not the way to approach the matter at all. In a matter of fact, it will probably make things worse and force the teen to seek more private and secret ways to communicate online.
