The simple fact is that the majority of people in this day and age are un-educated. Thus, they do not have a lot of information, or experience to draw
upon to formulate conclusions to information and solutions to problems.
This, quite succinctly, means that when faced with a potentially cataclysmic event, most people have no idea of what to do, because that sort of
scenario has never been discussed or imagined by them at any point in life. Hence - freak out!
If we taught our children that the universe is a wonderful but dangerous place, that it is a vast empty place, where there are OCCASIONAL events that
cause death and destruction; we might just stimulate a few brains into action and come up with a way to survive these sorts of events. Not to mention,
a young mind that can comprehend this sort of event happening, is more likely to survive it than someone who has never even thought about such an
event - unless they watch poorly made hollywood cinematography... Further, when the dinosaurs were made extinct 64million years ago, life still
survived that event. Thus there was no need to panic then, and there is no need to panic now. Even if humanity is brought to an end in one moment,
life will go on, and it is that single fact that is the important one.
The world is a dangerous place, but it is less dangerous than wonderful. Sit and think of it like this. You have more good days than bad in life
(FACT), but presently we all seem to be conditioned to concentrate on the bad days.
Concentrate on the good. Think of the bad events that can happen, and come up with solutions BEFORE they do... research, read, learn!!! That is the
key, and the goal we should all reach for. Not to mention it is the goal we should encourage others to attain too.
Here's a thought for you... if you have pondered and cogetated a potential event that could be negative to your life (or loved ones), then if you
come up with solutions to the problem, IF it were to ever occur, you would be PREPARED. If the event happened, you would likely have thought of
several solutions, and bingo, there is no bad event, or it has been kept to a minimum.
It is a tried and tested solution to problems - I have put it into practice throught my adult life.
READ, LEARN, THINK = No fear, because you are prepared.
