Well I think there is a lot of stuff going on in the world today, from the US recession to the bombings in Mumbai. With that said, there is also more chaos closer to home. Last night I heard that a bus driver got stabbed because he would not give a BedStuy bus rider a transfer to another bus, when the driver already let the kid on for free. The kid stabbed the man, and killed him.

Now that I work near Rockefeller Center in a tall building without a stair case that I can find yet, I think about holiday safety tips for myself, and my peeps. Here are a few useful way to keep yourself safe in New York City and throughout the world this holiday season:

1) Avoid situations where conflict may arise. For example, if you are trying to push your way into a subway car and people are looking angry about it, just stop- step back, and await the next car. This goes for anyone anywhere that uses mass transit.

2) Avoid rushing- try to expect delays this holiday season. To stay safest, make sure that you give yourself enough time to get where you are going. If you rush, you push and shove people when you are walking, and everyone knows the streets of Time Square are filled with tourists this time of year.

3) Be courteous- first off WHY NOT- its better karma. Also, that death that happened at Nassau County Wal-Mart was totally wrong and if people had common courtesy instead of greed riddled hope for a discount, they may have spared a man his life.

4) Bring water- you never know what could happen to you- especially if your riding a train that gets stuck on an icy track. You really want to be prepared in case of an emergency, and if there’s a list of preparation needs, water is at the top.  So bring just a bottle at all times.

5) Always know your exists- whenever you are traveling it is a good idea to know where and how you can exit. When I ride the subway or walk along the streets of New York City, I know where to head if I need to find safety.

Enjoy! eNJOY! ENjoy! Whatever you do, have a safe holiday, and enjoy yourself. Don not let fear cloud your experience traveling or commuting or shopping or whatever, but just be prepared that not ever day is a walk in the park. With these holiday safety tips you are sure to be prepared.

Stay safe- and keep a positive mind- everything will be Cheerful and Joyous!
