I’ve often thought about how I might react in a crisis and generally I have feared that I would become scattered and rattled and not be of much use. When I think back on past crises, however, it seems that I act the opposite of how I project I would act in future crises. What I have done in the past is to calm down and think very quickly of possible responses to the situation, settle on one and act. The fact that I am still alive is testimony to my actually being able to act very calmly in a crisis. I think I’ve described all of the situations in past posts, so rather than repeat them here, I’m going to try to find links.

Well, due to my terrible tagging, I could only find a link to one of the stories. I’ll keep searching, but in the meantime if anyone else can find a link to these other stories, please HELP. I’m trying to remain calm in spite of my frustration over this crisis!!!
In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “In a Crisis.” Honestly evaluate the way you respond to crisis situations. Are you happy with the way you react?
