When Help is Not a Call Away - You’re on Your Own!


The Benghazi terror attack on September 11, 2012, was a tragic day in American history; it was a profound wake-up call about the limits of governmental intervention. The brutal siege that claimed the lives of Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and three other Americans revealed a bitter truth: in critical moments, you may be on your own. This reflection underscores the necessity of self-reliance—the undeniable reality that, ultimately, no one is coming to save you.

On that fateful night in Benghazi, as the U.S. compound was besieged by terror, those within its walls awaited help that never came. The government, embroiled in bureaucratic delays and miscommunications, failed to deploy the necessary forces to defend its own. This catastrophic failure highlights a stark reality often masked by the assumption that help is always a call away—it isn't.

The operators from the CIA Annex nearby understood something crucial early into the attack: they were effectively on their own. With no sign of immediate help from their government, they rallied to defend the compound and protect their compatriots against overwhelming odds. Their actions were driven by a visceral blend of duty and the primal human instinct to survive and protect—one's 'family' in arms. This wasn’t just about professional obligation; it was about the fundamental drive to support those you consider family because no external help was forthcoming.

The ordeal faced by the defenders of the Benghazi compound serves as a grim reminder of why self-reliance is not just a valuable trait but a necessary one. In a world where the complexities of global and governmental machinery often fail those in immediate peril, the only reliable resources are one's own skills, preparation, and the close bonds formed with those who share our immediate world.

To be self-reliant is to be prepared—emotionally, physically, and logistically—for the moments when external systems falter. It's about fostering resilience and developing a network of mutual support with those closest to you, be they family, friends, or trusted colleagues. It's about recognizing that in the end, the responsibility to protect and persevere may rest solely on your shoulders.

As we remember Benghazi, let us not just dwell on the failures of a system or the valor of a few. Let us also absorb the critical lesson it imparts: the importance of self-reliance. In your most dire moments, the truth could be that no one is coming for you. Prepare for that reality—build your competence, strengthen your community, and cultivate resilience. These are the pillars that will stand when all else may fall.
