Ladies, learn to
be a survivor.
There is nothing more
protective than prayer, but it can also be
handy to know a few things. I've put one man behind bars and another
in the hospital, I thought I'd seen it all, but I read this from a
reader and learned a lot of good points.
1. Tip from Tae Kwon Do: The elbow is the
strongest point on your body. If you are close enough to use it, do!
2. Learned this from a tourist guide in New
Orleans. If a robber asks for your wallet and/or purse, DO NOT HAND IT
TO HIM. Toss it away from you....chances are that he is more
interested in your wallet and/or purse than you, and he will go for
the wallet/purse. RUN LIKE MAD IN THE OTHER DIRECTION!
3. If you are ever thrown into the trunk of a
car, kick out the back tail lights and stick your arm out the hole and
start waving like crazy. The driver won't see you, but everybody else
will. This has saved lives.
4. 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. DON'T DO THIS!) 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.
5. A few notes about getting into your car in
a parking lot, or parking garage:
A.) Be aware: look around you, look into your car, at the passenger
side floor, and in the back seat.
B.) 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
C.) 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.) [This is so true, I did
this once and was surprised at the response, attacks had been
happening there and they were on alert, but didn't catch the guy
6. ALWAYS take the elevator instead of the
stairs. (Stairwells are horrible places to be alone and the perfect
crime spot. This is especially true at NIGHT!)
7. If the predator has a gun and you are not
under his control, ALWAYS RUN! The predator will only hit you (a
running target) 4 in 100 times; And even then, it most likely WILL NOT
be a vital organ. RUN, Preferably in a zig-zag pattern!
8. 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.
9. Another Safety Point: Someone just told me
that her friend 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
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.

Your average American citizen has NO IDEA how many women are
missing. Laci Peterson became so famous not because missing women are
rare, it only caught the media's eye because of her smile. But there
are hundreds of thousands of unsolved cases of women that just
disappear, children as well. Be on guard and ALWAYS pray for your
family in these times!
