Ben Franklin said, “By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.”
I have no bomb shelter. I have no prepper storage facility. But I do have a healthy respect for the fact that a little bit of time now could make all the difference in the event of a future emergency. And much in the same way that we put money in savings and make freezer meals to have on hand for busy nights, preparing for a potential emergency is a wise step.
