Readiness - Preparedness and understanding for future events

There has been a host of diverse events over the last month or so concerning the global economic situation, the extremes of weather (droughts and floods) extreme solar activity, lack of crops and hike of food prices - so much so it is difficult to know where to start!
In addition we have witnessed recently the tragic shooting event in a Denver, colorado, cinema where 12 people were killed and many injured - some would say a bizarre and complex event that is yet to be completely understood - so many variables, missing pieces of information and 'lack of evidence' concerning the actual timing of the incident
Whatever one would think, it was indeed a tragic event especially for the friends and family for all concerned.

The question is, will we witness more events like this?

It is this question I will address and the complex and heated debate of the issue of firearms and the 'right' to bear them....and indeed are they 'effective' and even necessary...a hot topic..I will look at both sides of the argument - coming up in the next article before the end of July.

I am also compiling an article on 'Phase 2' of my earlier article on 'The time for Preparedness is Now!'... are we ready for a major disaster? whether natural or man-made? and how to recognise the signs - which we are already experiencing!

London Olympics Games XXX Olympiad - I will also touch on this upcoming event as we have received a number of 'heads up' of a possible 'false flag' so called terrorist attack - we will take a cautionary look at the possibility of such an 'attack' and what it may incur.

Keep tuned in...
Remember - B safe - B wise B prepared SURVIVE!

Preparedness?? why bother it will not happen here!

My title of this post just about sums the attitude of the majority...when I ask people what preparedness activities they have been organising in case of an event, no matter how minor, the usual reply why bother? ..the 'authorities' will come to our assistance'..or, I will go down to the store and get a few days of supplies in, no 'problem'..or 'Preparedness? that's what those weird folks in the woods do!'
The slightest disaster can creep up like a 'thief in the night' when you least expect it, whether it is a local minor power outage, ot a major general disaster..
Aeons ago in the early 1960's I recall watching a western movie, typical 'cowboys and Indians'; ('them and us' etc) where some 'dude' sitting in a stagecoach says in reply to 'watch out for the indians'..'Injuns? there 'ain't no darn Injuns round this place' - within seconds an arrow came whizzing through the open carriage window and killed him outright~!  so much for 'it ain't going to happen 'round here'..

Being prepared is a natural phenomena in our culture..unfortunately, 'our modern culture' has lost the plot due to the many modern methods of supply, living and eating habits..Some years ago I started an online book with this in mind, based on the American television series 'Jericho', whereby a nuclear device is exploded on US soil and we follow the aftermath of survival, practical solutions and the pychological fall out.. you can read some of my chapters here..

Follow the links on that page to continue with the reading and links.

Bear in mind that there is an average of only 73 hours in the turn around of food supplies to all supermarkets...once tranpsort is delayed or stopped for any reason, the shelves of your local grocery store will soon be emptied!

Bear in mind...when the crunch comes and a disaster is upon us the 'authorities' will be too busy sorting out their own issues and challenges and will be over worked ..expect no help for some time..when the crunch comes be prepared to be on your own!

I have covered this scenario, including help for the very young and 'seniors; and pets etc in my preparedness site - where many aspects and subject areas are covered.

In addition, we have recently witnessed one of the most sudden and severe storms on the East coast of the States, where major power outages were experienced, and a number of people killed, and all this in the middle of a major heatwave.
It appears it could be many days before power supplies are fixed..

'Natural news' have published what I consider a very apt and succinct article on this scenario and the apathetic approach to preparedness...

B prepared SURVIVE..
