As the daughter of a perennial Boy Scout, I was constantly exhorted to "be prepared." But I've learned in life that one cannot prepare for every
eventuality, no matter how hard we try. I've taken reasonable precautions, but not knowing where I will be or what I will be doing when SitX
presents itself - or even knowing what exactly SitX will be - I do not fool myself into believing that I can be perfectly prepared.
What I do know is that I will not allow fear to make me forsake my fellow man/woman, nor attack my fellow man/woman, nor otherwise betray my
conscience. I will let faith, love and good will guide my way (along with some good old-fashioned common sense, of course). I will be a friend in
deed and in need. If the bad guys get me, well, what can I say? Today - or any day - is a good day to die as long as my heart and soul are in the
Incidentally, I truly believe my/our time of death are already determined. At the moment of my birth, my death became a certainty. I cannot save my
life, I can only save my soul.
This probably isn't what you're looking for, but this is the way I see it.
