Active shootings and the killing of our nation’s first-responders are occurring so frequently that the media downplays their importance.
I was asked yesterday if I heard of the recent murder of two Florida law enforcement officers ambushed as they ate dinner. I had not, so I began searching for local and national news sources to find out the details. I did find the story, however, it was not a Top Story – even though it had occurred only 12 hours ago. The story was buried under priority placements of political unrest and sports scores.
Something is wrong. When an active shooting occurs, and innocent people are massacred it should be an important and frequently reported news event. It is important because it may provide the public some insight into the event so that you may prepare for or avoid a similar crisis event.
Please take a moment and talk with your family, your employer and your church about developing a plan to avoid and flee from a crisis event. It can happen in our community, and it can happen at any time.
