Another Example Why if you See Something, Say Something

Yesterday, the United States once again averted disaster when suspicious packages that were confirmed as explosive devices were discovered on their way to our nation.

These packages were sent via UPS and FedEx from Yemen and headed for Jewish organizations in the Chicago-area. How were they discovered? An alert employee inspecting packages. Additional “test” packages were found across the United States.

This illustrates two items; first, Middle East nuts (that are yes, Muslims) are still trying to kill us. They are trying many different ways to reach us and as President Bush and other law enforcement officials remind us, they only need to be right once; we need to be right every time.

Second, it is important for the public to remain vigilant. If you see something, say something! It is our responsibility to help law enforcement to keep this nation safe. A perfect example is the attempt on Times Square. A street vendor saw something suspicious and helped law enforcement avert disaster.

Don’t forget…we all need to work together to keep us all safe!
