Do you think people exude a certain aura about them? (more)
Sorry to hear about your misfortune. Knock on wood, but I have never been robbed or mugged. But I have also never been out late at night in almost 20 years without a concealed firearm. I can't say that I am all too careful either. I think nothing of stopping at the automated teller or a liquor store late at night, but the transients and drug addicts usually steer clear. I read daily accounts of robberies and shootings, often at the same locations I may have visited in the past. I hear similar accounts all the time. Do people who really know martial arts, or carry an arsenal project some kind of aura that says, "Just leave me the hell alone if you know what's good for you?" I don't want people to think I'm invincible, far from it. I just think it's uncanny that I can make a pit stop at 3 am in the ghetto and have drug dealers cross to the other side of the street on my account.
