I have always felt safe in my workplace and being in DC, we have more police per square mile than virtually anywhere in the world. What you don’t want to do is over-react in paranoia. Of course, we all need to be vigilent when we ride on the Metro or are in public venues…Maybe look up from our smartphones periodically. We are ALL responsible for our security. There aren’t enough police officers to provide each of us with a personal body-guard. We can all do more to make our environment safe and I know it sounds like a cliche at this point, but – “If You See Something…Say Something.”
Stay safe, but don’t let this incident change your life.
