Final Remarks

Fortunately, the chance of being injured or killed in a terrorist incident is remote. While not minimizing the tragedy of September 11, every month more people die nation-wide from automobile accidents than died in the collapse of the World Trade Towers. However, while you should not become complacent and assume an "it can't happen to me" attitude, you must not allow the threat of terrorism to prevent you and those you care about from living normal lives. The key to managing this dilemma is to:

  • Remain alert

  • Report suspicious activities to the authorities

  • Have a thought through plan on how to react if an emergency arises regardless of the time of day or location
