As you all may know, I live in the same general area as Mike. I have been known to bump into him at a surplus store. He's my friend and I'll offer whatever assistance I can. I will largely refrain from commenting or speculating on the case since I don't know the particulars and do not want to stir a lot of emotion by offering judgments.
I ask you all to pray that this might be resolved without a lot of fuss.
In light of Mike's situation though, perform a little risk management around avoidance, likelihood, and consequences.
- Could this happen to me?
- How can I prevent or avoid such an event?
- If I can't prevent or avoid, how can I lower the chances of it happening?
- How can I lower the consequences if it does happen?
- What might be the first indication that such a situation is beginning?
