You’re talking to a friend or family member who isn’t on board with preparedness. (And it’s even worse when they think they
know what’s going on in the world but garner their so-called
“information” from network news sources.) You try for the millionth
time to get them to consider stocking up on a few things and they say
Life’s too short for all of this doom and gloom. Live a little! You’re such a pessimist!
My response to this is that preparedness is the ultimate form of optimism.
One who practices skills, makes dramatic lifestyle changes, and
studies current events critically may come across to the uninitiated as a
person who has buried himself or herself in negativity, but in fact,
one who prepares is saying to life, “Whatever comes, we are not only
going to live through it, my family is going to thrive, and I will not
bend my knee to tyranny for an MRE and a bottle of water.”
