Collapsing economies, wars, increasing earthquakes and volcanic activity, skyrocketing crime as common sense seems to plummet, tyrannical takeover of the world called the New World Order… seems like the world really is ending. However, its not the end of the world, it just feels like it. The human race will go on no matter how crappy it gets. We won’t all die. History shows that, look at the black plague. Even Bible prophecy shows that a large proportion of humanity will survive past the all the hellish stuff that’s going to happen.
Prepping and survivalism is not all about doom and gloom. We have a lot of hope, actually. The more we prepare, the better our chances. We will also learn a lot of things the hard way. Putting away food and water are important, but we will also have to learn how to replenish our stocks during a long term crisis. Ammo will only last so long, how will we get more? How about learning to hunt with primitive weapons and snares and using the guns for the zombies? I enjoy learning new skills that will help me later on. The more we do now, the better off we will be and the better off our future generations will fare. Growing gardens, food preservation, processing wool and cotton by hand, raising livestock, hunting, trapping, carpentry, and a host of other skills will be needed.
Imagine a few years in the future, there you are teaching your sons to make and use a bow and arrow. Imagine your pride when he hits the mark dead on. Imagine the smile on your daughters’ faces when they are filled with excitement with their first harvest of vegetables. Laughing with joy, they run to you with their hands full of carrots and potatoes.
I hope that a long term disaster never happens, but the way things are going, its highly likely to happen sometime within my lifetime. No matter what, I will hold my head high and know that I did everything I could. If I’m alive when this is all over, I will be one of the first to rebuild society into a stronger, happier place. May God grant you all peace, my battery is about to die.
