Life is good and sometimes we don't even realize how good it is. Almost every day I have the opportunity to meet so many nice people who in some way enrich my life. Every once in a while I will get a phone call telling me about something happening to a loved one and it really makes me sad and a little angry. This week I received a call from the mother of a nineteen year old girl and she was so upset because someone tried to drag her daughter into a van, but thankfully, she was able to fight him off and get away. How thankful she and all her loved ones must be. Now the mother wants her daughter to carry something for her personal protection. Unfortunately, it is necessary today to have a personal alarm, pepper spray or stun gun for self-protection.
