Sensible Preparedness

Tomorrow. It isn’t especially pleasant to think about. Some people stress out over small things that will happen like a test in a hard class or having to wake up early to work more, whereas some other people have more of a tendency to worry about large, serious things that might happen like a nuclear holocaust. But it doesn’t really matter whether people stress over petty or serious things as long as they’re prepared – both for things they know will happen and for things that might happen. It’s like learning First Aid. It’s better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it. So even if a giant catastrophe doesn’t happen today or tomorrow, it’s still a good idea to have some supplies just in case it does. And if it never happens, you can use candles during a power outage, to save electricity, or for some atmosphere during dinner. If there’s a bear wandering around outside your house or you just forgot to go grocery shopping, you can eat some of the dried or canned food you have in storage. It isn’t at all strange or crazy to be prepared. It’s just common sense. So even if you don’t think the government will collapse or a nuclear holocaust might happen, it couldn’t hurt to be prepared just in case. As they say, it is better to be safe than to be sorry.
