In writing this I think that the time is coming for something to take place. World events are taking place more and more. Geo-physical, political,
weather, and so on. There is less time between events. I dont feel that our governments are capable of adapting and responding to said events.
Executive orders are being signed in haste because the political process takes too long. Many orders and actions by the governments will only cater to
a select few. The majority of us will be left to provide for ourselves or sign into involuntary servitude for goods and services provided by the
I realized some time ago that we as a society are uncapable of taking care of ourselves. We rely on someone else to provide for us services that we
cant provide for ourselves.
In 1999, I left East Texas to begin my enlistment in the United States Marine Corps. Though boot camp was difficult, it was not as impossible as I had
imagined. If you said yes sir or no sir and understood that hard work would be required to accomplish any task then you would succeed. Apparently that
isnt common practice in the majority of our world anymore. The sense of entitlement I observed in many recruits was astonishing. They didnt understand
that everything in life wasnt just handed to you.
Shortly after I finished my training I was stationed on Southern California at Camp Pendleton. One day was in the parking lot of my apartment changing
the oil in my truck. Several peers approached and asked why I was changing the oil myself and not taking it to the service station down the road. I
explained that I always serviced my vehicle myself, that that was how my father raised me. I then learned that most of them didnt know how to service
their own vehicles, nor did their fathers.
Over time I have seen that most of the population would be screwed if all the modern services currently used by society were suddenly rendered
useless. Think about how many people could actually provide for themselves.
How many can hunt, fish, manage a garden, sew, render first aid, cook from scratch, build a fire, repair a vehicle, provide shelter.
Not many people have all the skills needed to make long term on their own. My father raised my siblings and I under the idea of being a "jack of all
trades, master of none." We are pack animals. We thrive in groups. Everyone has something to offer. Even most people who have began preparations for
a doomsday can only survive short term by themselves. Eventually we will have to regroup and rebuild. Those with the most skill sets will be the most
valuable. Those with no skills for survival will need to be taught or used as labor. What role do you want to fill?
Like the title states, make each day count. Start now. When the SHTF it will be too late. You need to plan and organize now. Meet with like minded
people and discuss plans for a worst case scenario. We may lose all forms of communcation via television, newspaper, internet, and radio in an
instant. Then what? Hide and wait for someone to come save you?
I live in central Arkansas currently. I plan to immediately begin making contact with other people in the area and start planning. Muster points, safe
zones, ect. Who is bringing what to the table? What areas would we be lacking in? Who to contact to gain training or skill sets? Its now you start.
Not tomorrow because it might be too late...
Just putting this out for all to read and think about. Preparing for the end of our current world as we know is more than installing an under ground
bunker. Its what happens when your food and water stock pile run out and you have to venture out into the unknown.....
