    Kudos to the mother for teaching her daughter the importance of SA and for the daughter taking it seriously. It could of very well saved her life. It definitely saved her from an abduction and unknown horrors.

    Like anybody else who's out there making an effort to make a positive change in this world, I applaud her and her movement. This is a great video to send out to the women in our lives, even if they already have their mind up because I guarantee they at least have one female friend who's either on the fence or simply scared of guns that they can pass this along to.

    I feel a lot more at ease knowing the most important women in my life are armed, actively training, and capable of defending their life with tools greater than a whistle, while out and about.

    Really excellent video - a link to be sent in emails to everyone you know.

    Impressive. I actually started to get a little choked up watching that, thinking about all the women I know or know of who could benefit from Vicki's meaasge.

    I suppose I could be tossed into that same category. Back when (years ago), prior to arming myself daily, I was attacked on a couple occasions out of the blue. I was able to walk away from both, with only minor injuries. Within a couple years, I was carrying daily and doing things much differently in order to have simple precautions and elevated SA in my normal, everyday "routine." Beyond one attack in which I was forced to draw, since then, I have been violence-free in my life; no criminals have violently approached or threatened, since then. I thank the stars every day for opening my eyes as "easily" as they did. Not everyone's so lucky.
