Bin Laden Dead: Be Thankful, Be Careful
I hesitated to write this post because of the many lives lost on 9/11. I felt my words would not do this historic moment justice. My deepest sympathy to the families affected by this senseless and tragic event. I decided to press forward with my message of caution.
Last night, President Obama delivered a message we all have been waiting for. The world’s most wanted man was shot dead. A flurry of thoughts rushed through my head. The twin towers up in smoke, the heroic passengers taking down Flight 93 headed to Washington, weeping uncontrollably as the thought of all the lives lost overwhelmed me.
If you are traveling, be extra aware as Bin Laden followers might lash back because of his death. If you see anything suspicious, report it to the authorities. I found a helpful article called Surviving a Terrorist Airplane Hijacking for your information.
By now everyone knows Bin Laden is dead. However, while looking for more information on the internet, be careful. Reports are springing up that viruses and malware are increasing to take advantage of unknowing information surfers. Immediately delete any suspicious email and do not click on any suspicious web links. It amazes me, but I shouldn’t be surprised, that there are people out there who will take advantage of any situation, even one of historic proportions.
It took almost a decade, but at least we finally got our man. Be thankful, but also be aware of your physical surroundings and in cyberspace.
