RADIO PROGRAM NO. 259 - Where Do You Look for Safety?

Questioner: Nowadays I think that women are very concerned about violence and crime. I suppose using common sense would improve our chances of being safe, but what more can be done?

Speaker: This is a problem today and something we certainly must deal with. But since safety is often credited to the individual's having the presence of mind to know what to do to avoid or free himself from a dangerous situation, what makes sense to me is to have a real basis for keeping this presence of mind.

Questioner: Some people may have the presence of mind to cope with the situation, but there are many others who will panic.
