Human Security and our daily lives
Why Human Security In our daily lives?
The purpose of this blog is to show my appreciation to the people who saved my life on Saturday, 11 July 2015, at about 8:30, when my car caught fire for no apparent reason. I’d like to extend my gratitude to the West London fire services and the police for reaching out to me.
I’d also like to extend my sincere thanks to locals especially the family at 6 Beaufort Road, London W5, who offered me hot tea and lovely biscuit. If I was not told to move away from my burning vehicle I could have easily blown away.
Our human security is threatened by events well beyond our controls or the things we wouldn’t imagine happening to us e.g. road accidents, financial crises, unexpected death, flooding, getting caught in a nasty crossfire, and etc…
The accident that happened to day is something I’ve never imagined happening to me at all. I was driving to drop my son, Qananisa 16, to his tennis-training club in Ealing common, West London
In order to safeguard the vital core of our lives there are many simple things, but important things, we need to take care off. When driving off to our chosen destination we need to first of all give enough time for the unpredictable traffic hold ups whether it is in London or any other busy city in the world.
Checking the basic safeties of our vehicle, water, tyre, mirror and etc. could prevent unnecessary waste of time and most importantly the stress that could be a source of many illnesses.
We need Human Security in all the things we do
I look at these things as an IT Security professional where I believe that securing our sleeves is cannot be 100%, but we increase the measures that enhance the factor of being secured.
One thing we need to do on daily basis is appreciating all the things we have, houses, cars, jobs, especial skills we have and the fact we can communicate.
