I am a paraplegic, and am restricted from free access to outside of my house unless for a medical appointment via ambullete transportation since
hurricane sandy; i don’t know if my basement will be rebuilt before God flips the switch.
I live in Brooklyn, N.Y. with my parents, and When SHTF, i will be limited to assist with things that a person in a wheelchair restricted indoors can
help with. Other than that, any potential outdoor gardening or battles will have to be handled by my parents, my dear old grandmother, and our mini
pinscher dog(very capable yet stubborn little brother went to the marine corps). This is where the problem lies.
My parents are hard to crack when it comes to “conspiracy” stuff. They both are aware of this government operating by money over citizen welfare,
and the middle eastern wars were solely for profit, but they still feel Obama is doing the best with what he was left with, and still vote for the
best candidate. My dad will retort with “where did you hear that from?” or “How do you know it’s true? You read too much crap from the
internet” whenever i inform him of something. My mother is a bit more receptive, but have blown me off twice with a “not right now” or “i have
to go do something, next time” when i tried to show her some videos on the coming economic breakdown and the results thereafter.
I know nothing of prepping besides the obvious hoarding non-perishables, stockpiling firepower, and growing veggies. At least i can be a very skilled
Does anyone know of any definitive, solid evidence that i can show my parents that will get them to act? I mean something to really make there jaws
drop, and stay there on the floor. I know of a few YouTube videos, but something that cannot be refuted. I want to tell them of God already having
this mapped out through his words in the Bible, but i CANNOT come at them half cocked with this. Any info will be greatly appreciated. After i get my
parents on board, then i can move onto family, who just happens to be just as ignorant as my pops.
Then any tips or info for a family with a disabled person for a SHTF lifestyle in the city? I got a competent upper body, but i fear that me being
possibly confined to indoors in a wheelchair will severely limit my contributions to tasks that don't necessarily require legs, like “shoot at
anybody that busts through the door” type tasks, or cook. Oh yeah, don’t have any guns; ridiculously hard to get. This is New York. I highly doubt
that i will be able to get a gun legally before sh*t gets real, and i doubt even more that my parents will like the idea of those things laying around
in the house (even though my dad served in the Trinidad police force and private security during his younger days back home) I am kind of left with
going to some friends i know for light firepower or something.
Once again, any help will be deeply appreciated.
God bless all.
