With Christmas just a short time away, let me start with a bit of a story that happened at least 8 years ago. We were having our annual security Christmas party for the security team at my church. Every year we do a white elephant gift exchange. This particular year someone was trying to get a box open or get the ribbon off the box. Either way, the person asked for a knife. There was a slight chuckle in group as all you could hear was the click, click, click etc. of knives coming out of pockets and being flipped open. It was one of those moments that you had to be there and every year since that time there is always someone that asks that nostalgic question again. It wouldn’t be the same if someone didn’t ask it.
I would venture to say that most of you may not be aware at how often a knife attack happens. I am betting that most of you carry a knife of some sort on yourself. We call it Colorado Bling here because it is an accessory that many men in this state carry. If you do, do you train on how to deploy and effectively use it? Do you know how to handle someone that would want to do harm with a knife?
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
