a·ware·ness
əˈwernəs/
noun
knowledge or perception of a situation or fact; concern about and well-informed interest in a particular situation or development.

We are back this week discussing the shooting of 3 people in Virginia during a live broadcast and the reaction regarding “Situational Awareness” that blew up all over social media.  We discuss, while important, situational awareness is not a magic talisman that will automatically prevent you from being ambushed or being made a target by someone; especially one who is hell bent on doing harm to you as was the case with the victims in the Virginia shooting.

    Glad to have you guys back! “It’s called …… LIFE”. I like that statement. Some of the folks who talk on Facebook seem to think we can ignore everything in the world except looking for the thugs we may encounter. I’ve sometimes felt inadequate to my chosen role as a sheep-dog, because I cannot always be “situationally aware” as those guys describe it. When you made the statement “It’s called …… LIFE”, something clicked for me. I now see that no reasonable person can always be fully aware of the approach of the bad guys. I’m feeling better about myself right now. Keep up the good work, Evan & Ben. I’ll be listening! Count on it.
