A college age friend of mine recently texted me saying that she had been scared into doing a better job defending herself. A little concerned, I asked her what had happened. It turned out that when she was walking alone at a huge mall, she found herself being followed by a man.
She didn’t realize it until she entered an accessories store, where the man had followed her and suddenly asked for her name. She refused to tell him and then ran out of the store. Apparently, the man was quite determined and kept following her. When she entered a bread shop, there he was again, asking for her name. Finally, my friend began to panic and yelled at him in public, saying that she was not interested in introducing herself to him. That did the trick and he stopped following her.
This incident reinforced the importance of taking personal security seriously. I completely support her decision to take a more proactive approach to self defense. I recommended the SafeFamilyLife Extreme College Survival Kit for her. This kit is specifically developed for making a young female’s life more secure on and off of campus.
This complete safety package included a lipstick pepper spray, nap alarm, 1/2 oz. pepper spray with visor clip, 2 oz. pepper spray with wall bracket, 1/2 oz. pepper spray with keychain, book diversion safe, electronic pocket whistle, door stop alarm, Cell Phone Lite flashlight, and motion alert alarm. All batteries, a products instructional guide, training DVD, and 6 special safety reports were supplied.
This kit is one of many that offers serious non-lethal personal security as well as piece of mind.
