It was nice going to a local festival yesterday and seeing a table set up with brochures for the kids and families on Emergency Preparedness.
Even when we're having a good time, we need to have in mind the possibility that things can go very wrong.
These last couples of weeks with Hurricane Harvey and Irma, we saw again the destructive forces that Mother Nature can bring.
And today being the 16th Anniversary since the terror attacks on 9/11 and the almost 3,000 murdered at the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, we are reminded of the necessity to always be ready for man-made/inflicted disasters as well.
Now with Axis of Evil nations, North Korea and Iran, continuing to pose alarming threats to the West, the need for preparation and readiness to dangerous WMD--whether from an ICBM or a suitcase bomb--is ever present
Let's just say until the final redemption when peace will reign on earth, we can never just rest securely on our laurels.
Even on a sunny day, the clouds may be gathering to threaten us.
So have a plan. Be prepared. You and your families lives across our beautiful and free nation depend on it. ;-)
