Surround yourself

Walking around some parts of a city at night may be scary to men and women. You don't know whether you will encounter a mugger or a crazy homeless person. I have learned that surrounding yourself with people can allow for the avoidance of these confrontations or being able to get out of the confrontation safely.

I want to know if there is a way to make people feel not as alone even when they are. Is there something to make them aware of their surroundings and how to safely avoid potentially dangerous situations?

Hi Cynthia, interesting post! Any chance you could find an image to go along with it? Images help grab attention and tell a story with higher impact. You should be able to use the Update Entry button on the right of your post and follow the instructions to add images from there. We know occasionally people have issues uploading images so let us know by hitting the Feedback button at the bottom of most pages of our site if you face any problems. Looking forward to seeing more of your inspiring insights on OpenIDEO.
