If You See Something, Say Something
In these crazy times of terrorism, when people are willing to give up their lives for the greater evil, it’s never been more important to follow this advice: “If You See Something, Say Something.” It’s better to be safe than sorry. A couple of months ago, my wife and I were walking though the Doha airport in Qatar when she pointed to an unattended backpack by a garbage can. I wasn’t too worried since we were already through security but I wasn’t taking any chances. Unattended luggage should always be regarded as suspicious. I immediately found a nearby worker and brought the item to his attention…and then hightailed it out of the area. If you ever see something that just doesn’t seem right, definitely alert someone. You never know how important that simple act could be.

FYI: More on our last trip to Doha here.
