    ""Most of the people in our society are sheep. They are kind,

    gentle, productive creatures who can only hurt one another by

    accident."

    "Then there are sheepdogs," he went on, "and I'm a sheepdog. I live

    to protect the flock and confront the wolf."...

    We know that the sheep live in denial, which

    is what makes them sheep. They do not want to believe that there is

    evil in the world.

    The sheep generally do not like the sheepdog. He looks a lot like

    the wolf. He has fangs and the capacity for violence.

    He is a constant reminder

    that there are wolves in the land.

    Until the wolf shows up! Then the entire flock tries desperately to

    hide behind one lonely sheepdog.

    Their only response to the wolf, though, is denial, and all too

    often their response to the sheepdog is scorn and disdain.

    It is denial that turns people into sheep. Sheep are psychologically

    destroyed by combat because their only defense is denial, which is

    counterproductive and destructive, resulting in fear, helplessness

    and horror when the wolf shows up."

    Well, sounds like she is a sheep and you sir remind her of the wolf she is denying exists.

    Yeah, What he said,

    Sounds like a voice of experiance.

    Not to go off topic, but I'm sick and tired of seeing this stereotype thrown around. My mother is a public school teacher, and admittedly in the minority as far as politics go. Still, I'd love to see one of you guys make such a comment to her face, you might find yourself picking pieces of it up off the floor. Sorry, it just really gets my back up to see an entire profession pigeonholed like that. Those of you who refer to them that way obviously don't know many teachers.

    Euc........you're a Survivor, and nothing wrong with that. Those people are Sheep, and sheep are always lead in the direction that others want them to go in.
    Gawwwd!! If I worked within that building, the people there would think I'm a maniac. My views on how i want to survive, and the means i'd take to survive a violent incedent would make them cringe. They would never take into account, tha fact I'd also be attempting to protect them as well as myself.

    I love teachers. Everything that I ever was taught was taught by a teacher. You can learn from a teacher if the teacher is teaching the stuff that should be taught. Huh,well,just firget it !!

    This is very serious, Euc. Especially when she finds out you are a practitioner of esoteric martial arts:http://ezine.kungfumagazine.com/maga...hp?article=315 (Just could not resist!!!)

    Guess I'm a tad barbaric- if you fear me, hurry and kill yourself now. The REAL barbarians are not so civil and polite. Which would you rather have around?.........

    It is striking how similar your conversation was to one my wife and I had years ago, after we first met. I stayed in Yellow whenever we were out, always scanning, aware of those around me, and we had a disaster kit ready at all times at home, long before I got my CCW and started carrying. She told me she trusted me, and that it scared her that I thought these steps were necessary. She said it made her more wary when we were out. From what I could understand, she was upset that I was raising her level of awareness from White to Yellow. A hurricane, and a tornado warning for our neighborhood, finally changed her opinion.

    I wonder if your co-worker actually finds *you* scary, or is scared because you find it necessary to be prepared and because you plan for the worst while hoping for the best. Maybe it isn't you she's afraid of, but the world you see (that she doesn't) that scares her.

    Jee whiz I never imagined anyone would be so interested in this.

    But anyway, she got to see me confiscate an evil squirtgun today in front of multiple witnesses... maybe that will calm her down.

    I'm not going to worry about it any more. I can't spend my time worried about what some irrational person might think of me.

    Euc, don't loose any sleep over this. I have met people like that most everyplace i have ever worked. Don't let this person discourage you and just keep on rollin'.Folks like that are strange, and just know that if anything ever happens you will probably be the first one she come running to. Oh yeah, I love them Leathermans too.

    she told me I would see things from her perspective if I were “in touch with my feminine side”.
    I would have told her "If I had a feminine side....I'd be touching it".

    Euc, sounds like your colleague is generally unprepared and suspects the worst of anyone who is prepared for whatever.

    Most interesting to me is that her comment about your possibly killing in self defense indicates that she is telepathic!
