Preppers are amazing people! I mean just think about it. They are awake when the rest of the country is sleeping and unaware of what is going on in the world around them. They are not just awake, but they actually take action to prepare for what is coming down the road. In today’s post, we are going to look at just what makes us all so different from the rest of society.
I think maybe it’s time we toot our own horn a little. Preppers seem to get a bad rap because other people just refuse to see the reasoning around what we do. They close their eyes and pretend that the world is not falling apart around them. For them it’s just too painful to accept reality. On the other hand you have Preppers that have not only faced reality, but have embraced it as well. Now that is not to say that any of us are looking forward to what is coming down the road, but we are not blind to it, as many others are. We have chosen not to ignore it and to do something about being ready for when it appears. Like a squirrel storing up nuts for the winter that he knows is coming, we are preparing for the conflicts and hunger that we know is coming.
When the crap finely hits the fan, those very people who have chosen to hide their heads in the sand, will be the first to say that they didn’t know and that no one ever told then it could happen. Then they will turn to us and complain that it is our fault somehow and that we need to take care of them. Now I don’t know about you, but that just isn’t going to happen where I am concerned. If they chose to stay ignorant while I work and saved, then they can just do without. Now don’t get me wrong, I have a big heart and will help anyone that is willing to help themselves, but what I can’t stand are people who seem to think that the world owes them something. I think most of us are like that. In fact, I think that one of the hardest things most Preppers will face will be not helping the masses when the time comes. We are by our very nature helping souls. This is also our biggest weakness.
Preppers are an amazingly resourceful people and find many ways to store up what they need and are also very inventive as well. I am amazed every day at the ways that Preppers come up with for doing things in an off grid world. Some of these are simply brilliant! There is no other way to put it! We can take anything and make something completely different and usable out of it. We find ways and places to hide and store our preps that the average person would never think of. I really don’t know how to explain it but it is almost like it is these very qualities that allow us to see what others will not. Qualities that allow us to prepare when others won’t. Yes, we are a resourceful bunch that is for sure, and we are survivors as well. Our determination and grit to survive when others will parish are another defining characteristic of Preppers. We are a tough lot and will not go quietly into the night or just lie down and die as many others will.
Yes, we are Survivors and will find a way to make it no matter what happens. The government say’s we are terrorist because we prepare to survive the mess that they have created, but we know the truth and if anything we are patriots because we just won’t stand by and let our country die. Many of us will fight till the end and never give up. It is just the way that we are made. Strong, tough, and independent, that’s what we are. We will never give up, and we will never give in. Yes, we are an amazing lot, so hold your head high when someone asks if you are one of those crazy Preppers, because it will be us that survive the coming crisis when others will die. Be proud of who and what you are and never let yourself believe for one moment that what you’re doing is crazy, because it definitely is not! There are millions of us here in the US and our numbers are growing every day. You are awake when others sleep, and you prepare while others play and chase false dreams. You are a Prepper and a Survivor!
Until next time, please stay safe and keep on prepping!
