Having said that, let me say this. When disaster comes the worst disaster among disaster is the human element. Those who are not prepared can quickly become your worst nightmare, especially if they are among those who have no morals or conscious and support an entitlement mentality.
Of course it is always ideal if neighbors pitch in to help each other, but depending on the disaster it doesn't always turn out to be the case, so even though it takes some effort, planning and putting some of that hard earned money into something one might never use, it is better to be prepared than not. "Prepare for the worst and hope for the best."
Today, Americans along with people around the world are facing disastrous times. I am however, going to concentrate mostly on America and the American condition because America is my home. My husband and I have been preparing for years and we are still not as prepared as we want to be. Part of that is due to the never ending attack against the people by this government who seems to be purposely trying to cripple this country.
Every time one thinks they are going to get ahead or accomplish anything, another rug is jerked out from under them in one form or another. We are under the constant threat of tyranny as well as terrorism, which has come in many forms and is only in the infancy of its probable impact on the people of this nation. To say that people should get prepared is an understatement, especially for those who have not taken the warning signs seriously.
At this late date in the epic of the New World Order attempted takeover of America, getting prepared for the coming disaster is not going to be as easy as say ten years ago. Many people have already suffered life crippling disaster in their lives and their lifestyle has been enormously downgraded. Many are homeless, out of work and have lost all that they have spent a lifetime working for. Others are hanging on by a thread, praying that nothing else hits them.
No matter how bad it gets as long as one is alive, he or she can survive. It is all about attitude and one must never give up hope. There is always a way, maybe even a better way and once people get it, it can all turn around, so one must never give up. When one gives up hope, he or she is finished. Get mad, get tough, suck it up and make a pact with yourself and God that you will survive. Repent your sins, open your heart and let God guide you and give you wisdom.
