Things are changing and not for the better! Everywhere you look, thing are getting worse. I’m sure that comes as no surprise to you if you have been watching the news and talking with your friends. In today’s post we are going to take a look at the current state of affairs and how they will affect us the Preppers, so grab a cup of coffee and sit back so we can visit. 🙂
Let’s start by looking at what is going on the world today, like the Paris attacks and now the attack and Murder of those 14 people in California while celebrating their Christmas Party. A couple, hell-bent on Jihad and having no pity on their helpless victims, wantonly murdered innocent men and women. They were cowards and hid behind mask because they were afraid. These were supposed to be moderate Muslims and look what they did. In my opinion there are no moderate Muslims, only Muslims and they will all murder innocent men, women and children without remorse. That is what their Koran teaches them to do, so they do it.
There are more and more terrorist in the world every day and as Preppers we need to recognize this and prepare accordingly. It wasn’t so long ago that you could go to town with your family, here in the US, and not have to worry about the safety of you or your family, but those days are gone now. Now we have to question everything we see and take every care to protect ourselves and our families. I know I no longer go anywhere without a gun and a knife, not because I am paranoid, but because I believe in being prepared. I hate that it has come to this, but it has and I will not be caught without them. As the saying goes, “It’s better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6!” If something were to happen to my family because I was unprepared, I could never forgive myself. Being prepared is what we Preppers are all about after all. My wife even wears a neck knife at all times when she is outside the house, because she has chosen to never be a victim, and she never will be. She has made a conscious decision and practices it just as you should.
Don’t just prepare for what might come after SHTF, prepare for what could happen to you right now, while you are at the store, or in the yard. Make a conscious decision not to be another victim and actively prepare for the possibility that you may need to defend yourself right now. Regardless if you are a man or a woman, 20 years old or 80 years old, get self-defense training. It’s not about strength, it’s about knowing how to defend yourself by using your opponents strength against them. Take the time and learn, you will be glad that you did.
As Preppers, we all realize the value of being prepared, but sometimes we forget that we need to be prepared for today and not just tomorrow. Please pay attention to what is going on, and don’t allow yourself to be made a victim during this holiday season. Remember to be aware of everything going on around you at all times when you are away from home and shopping for loved ones. Only through being vigilant, can we hope to overcome the evil in the world today. Terror has come to America and we must now prepare for it as well. I guess that’s it for today and I hope you have a great weekend. Stay strong, be safe and most importantly, keep on prepping!
