Safety in numbers

I've been following Sam's trip to Israel pretty closely. To be honest, I'm blown away by what he is experiencing and how serious security operations are there (obviously I have never been.) Security really is a way of life and it is a necessary tool to help keep the quality of life in tact. And the country's residents understand this.

North America doesn't face the same threats by any means, but we are facing threats of our own (devastating news coming out of Northern Illinois University) and people here have to start realizing that security plays a huge part in protecting our livelihood.

This person gets it.

More people need to support the efforts of security professionals — the public's support, I believe, will help reduce the likelihood of these recent shootings, and their aftermath.
