People are in need of help.
And, as time goes by, that number is only increasing.
At some point the tide will turn, but more and more Americans are finding themselves just getting by.
So what are you to do if you are not one of them?
Prepare for yourself now so those who cannot can be helped later.
Many people are not in a position to be able to very easily prepare for economic hard times, food shortages, or worse.
But if you are, doing what you can to prepare yourself and your family now will not only prepare your own household to thrive through hard times, but it will also remove your household from the coming competition for scarce resources.
Yes, it is coming, and we’ve seen it before.
It ain’t pretty.
That is why your selfishness in preparing your household today is actually selflessness in opening the door for those less well off to be helped tomorrow.
61% of Americans don’t have the money to spare to prepare.
That is not a good number and it should blow the trumpet to all those who do to prepare now.
Prepare your household, then prepare your community.
Look up your local food bank and make some donations. Small, large, it doesn’t matter.
They will need it.
When food shortages hit or when more people find themselves in financial need, the food banks will be one of the first lines of defense to keep our population fed and, by extension, keep the peace.
If you think starving mobs of people will be quiet and civil, you might want to think again.
Stocking up resources for you and your community now are necessary steps to keeping peace in the future.
By preparing your household today, you help another be fed tomorrow.
By making a donation to a food bank today, you prevent another from going hungry tomorrow.
And every person you keep out of a hungry, desperate mob keeps your community and nation safer.
That sounds like good motivation to me.
The steps to preparing tomorrow’s safe community today with love are shockingly easy and astonishingly beneficial, but still far too few people are acting on them.
We need to change that.
Frankly, you will get more out of taking those steps than those whom you are helping.
Let’s take them.
