Over the course of the last few weeks, my brother an I have been discussing the present state of affairs on planet Earth. Needless to say, the
situation becomes a little more concerning everyday. We have been prepared for some time if the need ever arises to fend for ourselves and defend
ourselves. While we have thought about our own families and each other's, we have many people around us that we cannot convince to take the steps
needed to be prepared.....just in case.
This poses a huge dillema in a survival situation. Do you help people if they come asking, even though they failed to take action beforehand, or do
you turn them away to ensure you have enough supplies for your own family? Well we have decided to take one extra step to help people in just this
scenario. We have made a few extra small boxes filled with some basic nessesaties that we can easily hand out to people we wish to help, without
dipping into our personal stash or letting them into our homes. It's not much, but it helps us prevent from having to turn away people in need and I
feel it's the moral thing to do.
Then I had the realization that if everyone I knew, that was smart enough to prepare for hard times, took the time to prepare just a small box of
essentials for others it could save many lives. Then I also realized that I don't know many personaly in "real life" that even think about this sort
of topic, let alone prepare for it. So the only people I know that would understand this is you, ATS.
