It was Benjamin Franklin who said, those who ‘fail to prepare, prepare to fail.’ When you think about things – and I mean, really think about them – the chances of disaster striking really aren’t that low. I’m sure you’ve had enough scare mongering from the 10pm news, so I’ll spare you that, but, we’re all aware of how fragile life can, and we all realize how everything exists in fine balance.
If you’ve ever worked for a multi-national company, you’ll know they’re insured against practically everything. It wouldn’t surprise me if many had coverage against snowman attacks, given the prepared nature of most CEO’s. Yet, curiously, when a person takes similar precautions, they can be seen as somewhat paranoid. It’s peculiar.
72 hour kits are something you buy and then forget about. They’re like bandages. You hope you’ll never one, but it’s there if ever you do. See the real scary outcome isn’t having to use a survival kit, it’s needing one, and not having one available. Then, you and your families lives are suddenly in jeopardy.
No matter the current state of the world, It’s not unreasonable to be prepare for war. It’s not unreasonable to prepare for extreme weather hitting. It’s not even unreasonable to assume a natural disaster could occur at any time soon. Because nobody knows. In fact, survival kits aren’t pessimistic, they’re optimistic. Being prepared allows you to relax and face the future knowing that you have a contingency plan in place.
Ask yourself this, I were forced to evacuate my home, or if I were left stranded without food, water, gas and electricity, could I really cope?
