Today, as American’s mark the unofficial end of summer with Labor Day, we hope you’ll take time for some reflection. Some things you may want to consider:
- Despite the 9.0-plus unemployment rate, we in American live in relative affluence and wealth. There is a reason we have problems with illegal immigration; people want to come to America to pursue their dreams. After all, American is known as the Land of Opportunity.
- Although there are many signs of coming hardships, preppers are better prepared to weather the storms of life than the average person. By preparing, we are positioning ourselves to help our friends and neighbors should the need arise.
- We’ve all heard the saying “Hope for the best and plan for the worst.” Frequently, we focus a lot of our attention on the second part of the motto – preparing for the worst. But try not to focus solely on the negatives. Spend some time hoping for the best and enjoying the good things in life.
- Life today moves fast. Make sure you spend some time with your family and friends. Don’t get so busy making a living (or prepping for the worst) that you forget to make a life.
