how exactly does one stay "vigilant"?

\Vig"i*lant\, a. [L. vigilans, -antis, p. pr. of vigilare to watch, fr. vigil awake: cf. F. vigilant. See Vigil.] Attentive to discover and avoid danger, or to provide for safety; wakeful; watchful; circumspect; wary. ``Be sober, be vigilant.'' --1 Pet. v. 8.

Sirs, take your places, and be vigilant. --Shak.

Source: Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary, 1996, 1998 MICRA, Inc.

again... stay vigilant, stay aware of your surroundings, report suspicious activity, go about your lives... and stay safe. it's a very simple thing to do.

I can't help but think of the old 'don't cry wolf' saying when they raise these alert colors. It makes my head hurt to think of all the articles, interviews and conversations I've had about all of this. I still don't think they'll warn us again if there's another terror attack because I believe they knew about 9/11.

So I guess I don't pay much attention to the alert system, however I do wish everyone best wishes if they have to travel during this time.

Homer: Not a bear in sight. The Bear Patrol must be working like a charm.
Lisa: That's spacious reasoning, Dad.
Homer: Thank you, dear.
Lisa: By your logic I could claim that this rock keeps tigers away.
Homer: Oh, how does it work?
Lisa: It doesn't work.
Homer: Uh-huh.
Lisa: It's just a stupid rock.
Homer: Uh-huh.
Lisa: But I don't see any tigers around, do you?
[Homer thinks about this, then pulls out some money]
Homer: Lisa, I want to buy your rock.
