Eyes Open, People
My husband watched dear leader's oval office address last night, and this morning he was even more adamant about me and our daughters' welfare in a soft target area.
No surprises there... situational awareness, following the OODA loop cycle (observe, orient, decide and act) developed by military strategist and USAF Colonel John Boyd. That is worth looking into.
I grew up in New York City and developed a big city-hardened situational awareness. When I moved to Florida in 1968, my caution was looked upon as a bit of a paranoid over-reaction by some. Still, I couldn't scrub it out of my psyche even if I wanted to, and so I didn't. I locked my cars in my car port and had several locks on my doors.
...but I worry about my daughters and all the other soft targets there are in America today. How open are their eyes?
How open are yours?
