I suppose one could say we are all the sum of our total life experience.
Humans are lucky in that those with half a brain and ears can listen and learn.
My generation did not have to go through the great depression yet there were plenty of stories for those who were interested. When my grandmother died and we were cleaning out her house for sale we found a little over $8000 in her sofa and another couple of thousand in her easy chair. Why... because granny saw what it was like to not be able to make a withdrawal from a bank that was closed indefinitely for holiday.. I have ever since tried to keep some cash on me or placed in an area where I could retrieve it.. Never had to but it was always there.. Just like having enough water and food for a few weeks or a month would seem like a good idea to me...
Sometimes it is to late to learn when faced with a problem but if you survive the first go around many will be better prepared the next time.. experience/learning is the master and we are all but students.
Now from our observations a lot of people are now starting to prepare...is something happening in the grand plan that is telling people to get ready..that we will have to rely on ourselves and not the system
