Take the emotions you are feeling and use them as fuel for real change.
If you feel you are not safe where you live make a plan to move to
someplace where you can feel safe, or make your home a fortress.
You may not be able to carry a gun on the street, but you can carry
a TASER or bear mace that you can claim is for pitbulls roaming.
Drop bars for your doors, bars for your windows, motion sensor lights,
and anything else you can think of for safety.
The fact is though with what is coming it is best to get out of the city,
or have a bug out plan in place to bug out if things get VERY bad.
Have a few bug out locations ie. primary, secondary, tertiary, etc.
Look at it as a camping trip if you get nervous, and if things get better
you can always go back home.
But prepare for the possibility of being gone for good.
Do at least one dry run and go camping and practice your skills,
what you fail at you need to work on.
Do not be afraid to leave to early, do not be concerned how you might
look if you sound a false alarm and ppl harass you for it.
The worst thing you did was go for a drive ...
If you happen to be right you and your family will survive.
I sincerely think that ppl that have been watching and reading and
paying attention will have at least a few hours jump on other ppl
for bugging out.
The unaware, and unawake will not "get it" as fast as those who have
been tracking events and talking to others.
Any and all ppl in your group should be on a phone tree, so that if any
see a trigger event happen your group can start bug out by the numbers
like clock work.
Check out survival blog for some good info, but do not spend a lot of
money on survival, there are many cheap ways to do it.
Good Luck to you all !
