I had the privilege of knowing this inspiring and amazing young lady when she was in the LAPD Academy as well as at the time of her shooting; she exemplifies the reason you should make sure that you "Stay In The Fight"! Looking forward to reconnecting with her when she speaks at the NAPOA conference in Las Vegas next month.

I'm glad Officer Lim made survived that vicious attack. Lucky for her that, even while off-duty, she's permitted to carry a firearm to defend her own life. So what about the rest of us citizens for whom Officer Lim and her colleagues & superiors work?

Thank you, Officer Lim, for providing a great example of survival mindset. Your story is a big part of my motivation to keep training myself and keep teaching people to fight and win. Very thankful to live in New Mexico, a shall-issue state.
