Though we as humans are not listed on the periodic table, everything that combines into our chemical makeup is. We, you, me, all of us are at the essential core of the salvation of mankind. If that sounds redundant or worn out, well, think about it. We are not only charged with surviving ourselves, but we need to contribute to the preemptive avoidance of any and all catastrophic events to the extent we can influence such. I assume nobody wants Armageddon.

This may sound trite, but I am encouraged by the level of grassroots participation in some of the state political caucus events. People are getting involved. This is critical even at the local neighborhood and town levels. Don’t let these local “powers” take your world away from you. Speak up, get active. Keep prepping as though your life may well depend on it, but at the same time let’s not give up on avoiding it.
What Will Be Left of Life?
Let’s hope the cockroaches, rats, and the coyotes don’t inherit whatever is left after the final SHTF. That demise is ultimately left up to us. Us being the human race. Wow, that all sounds pretty dramatic even to me. If you have read my stuff before, you know I enjoy dissecting clips from popular movies depicting the portrayal of the apocalypse(s). I know it’s fiction, but if you really want to see a taste of reality just look around our world to see what is happening to other populations of people.
ISIS really is terrorizing the world. They really are beheading people including children. They are actively recruiting young people in Europe and America. We just had two college students from a Mississippi university intercepted trying to reach Turkey to get to ISIS operatives in the Middle East. This is real stuff. I often hear preppers discussing their futures after a prolonged SHTF. It may not be pretty. Sometimes I think we live in a dream world if we think life would ever be the same if a dirty bomb went off in America.
When something like that arrives on our door steps, we will never be the same. Just think of how the aftermath of the Twin Towers still lingers especially for the families directly affected. Such events nearly wipe out the soles of that generation. Sure, Japan survived Hiroshima, “we” survived Katrina, the town survived Sandy Hook, San Bernardino has recovered, the country will survive the present administration, we hope. What will be left of life after a SHTF may be in big part dependent on what we do now to shape it before the next SHTF.
