Always be Aware of Your Surroundings

Is this a vehicle you would park next to in a dark parking lot? This is a typical public parking lot in a typical town anywhere and everywhere in the United States.

Notice the light blue car to the left of this Ford Bronco. That car belongs to a 16 year old girl. The Ford Bronco is running and had been running for several hours. It was running when the young girl parked next to it. Sadly, there is a dead body in the Bronco. The body was sitting upright in the driver's seat, in plain view. The driver of the Bronco had driven into the parking lot and had committed suicide. Yet it took several hours for anybody to notice and call the police. The 16 year old girl never even noticed. The point I'm trying to make is you need to be aware of your surroundings. What if a predator, such as the likes of Ted Bundy, had been in the Bronco, simply waiting for a young female victim to park next to him?
