Change: Good or Bad?

Those of you who have visited this blog site may have noticed a recent change.  The original site name was Homeland Safety but has since been changed.  In November 2012, Homeland Safety ceased to exist, and I found myself without employment.

I find myself at odds with the need to change, but I am forced into it.  Change can be good or it can be bad.  Often change makes us leave our comfort zone and explore new opportunities.  So, I hope that this new change brings new and bright opportunities.  Wish me luck.

I have wrestled with the thought of starting a new blog, but I did not want to lose the content I already added here so I just changed the title of the blog site (more change).  I intend to keep posting to this site for the near future.  I am still passionate about safety, security and risk management especially after that horrifying recent event in Connecticut.

I want everyone to remember at this time of the year those brave teachers who made the ultimate sacrifice that day protecting their children, and the brave men and women of our armed forces and public safety services who have made the ultimate sacrifice this past year.  Pray for them and their families.  Those are the people (sheepdogs) I talked about in my post last year about Sheep, Wolves and Sheepdogs.

Also, I welcome any leads about employment in my chosen profession in the NYC Metropolitan area.

Happy Holidays to all.  Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to everyone.
