We wish you all to read it and never have the need to use any of them.
However, we also wish you to recall them if all of a sudden your life starts resembling one of these situations:

1.Robbery
If a robber asks for your wallet and/or purse,
Do not hand it to him – instead TOSS IT AWAY FROM YOURSELF!
Chances are that he is more interested in your wallet/purse than in you, and he will go for the wallet/purse.
RUN LIKE MAD IN THE OTHER DIRECTION!

2. Kidnapping
If you are ever thrown into the trunk of a car, KICK OUT THE TAIL LIGHTS from inside the trunk.
You can do it in most cars.
Then STICK YOUR ARM OUT THE HOLE AND START WAVING like crazy.
The driver won’t see you, but everybody else will.
This tip has saved lives.

3. Kidnapping
Women have a tendency to get into their cars after shopping, eating, working, etc., and just sit (doing their checkbook, or making a list, etc. — Wrong!!!)
The predator will be watching you, and this is the perfect opportunity for him to get in on the passenger side, put a gun to your head, and tell you where to go.
AS SOON AS YOU GET INTO YOUR CAR, LOCK THE DOORS AND LEAVE RIGHT AWAY!

4. Kidnapping
If someone is in the car with a gun to your head DO NOT DRIVE OFF,
repeat: DO NOT DRIVE OFF!
Instead gun the engine and speed into anything.
WRECK THE CAR, YOUR AIRBAG WILL SAVE YOU!
If the person is in the back seat they will get the worst of it .
As soon as the car crashes bail out and run.
It is better than having them find your body in a remote location.

5. Be Alert, Watch Out for these signs
A few notes about getting into your car in a parking lot, or parking garage:
– Be aware: look around you, look into your car at the passenger side floor and in the back seat
– If you are parked next to a big van, enter your car from the passenger door. Most serial killers attack their victims by pulling them into their vans while the women are attempting to get into their cars.
– Look at the car parked on the driver’s side of your vehicle and the passenger side. If a male is sitting alone in the seat nearest your car, you may want to walk back into the mall, or work, and get a guard/policeman to walk you back out.
IT IS ALWAYS BETTER TO BE SAFE THAN SORRY. (And better paranoid than dead.)

6. Be Alert
Stairwells are horrible places to be alone and the perfect crime spot, especially at night.
ALWAYS TAKE THE ELEVATOR INSTEAD OF THE STAIRS!

7. Attack, Kidnapping
If the predator has a gun and you are not under his control, ALWAYS RUN!
The predator’s shot will likely miss you (a running target) 96 out of 100 times;
And even if hit, it most likely WILL NOT be a vital organ.
RUN, RUN, RUN!
Preferably in a zig -zag pattern!

8. Attack, Fight
The elbow is the strongest point on your body.
IF YOU ARE CLOSE ENOUGH TO HIT WITH YOUR ELBOW — DO IT!

9. Be Alert, Watch out for these signs
As women, we are always trying to be sympathetic: STOP !
It may get you raped or killed.
Ted Bundy, the serial killer, was a good-looking, well educated man, who ALWAYS played on the sympathies of unsuspecting women.
He walked with a cane, or a limp, and often asked “for help” into his vehicle or with his vehicle, which is when he abducted his next victim.

As another illustration, here is the safety point mentioned on America’s Most Wanted this past Saturday when they profiled the serial killer in Louisiana:
A woman heard a crying baby on her porch the night before last and she called the police because it was late and she thought it was weird.
The police told her “Whatever you do, DO NOT open the door.”
The lady then said that it sounded like the baby had crawled near a window,
and she was worried that it would crawl to the street and get run over.
The policeman said, “We already have a unit on the way, whatever you do, DO NOT open the door.”
He told her that they think a serial killer has a baby’s cry recorded and uses it to coax
women out of their homes thinking that someone dropped off a baby.
He said they have not verified it, but have had several calls by women saying that they hear baby’s cries outside their doors when they’re home alone at night.

BE KIND AND COMPASSIONATE BUT STAY ALERT AND SAFE AT ALL TIMES!
