I am always asked why we bother prepping or why should people become “survivalists” or some other variation of this question when I am interviewed by the press. In most instances I give what I consider a “soft answer” the answer is factual and helps people understand, more importantly it fits in the brief segment allocated by the interviewer for that question. The real answers though are much deeper than,
“We prepare because sometimes things go wrong, sometimes bad things happen to good people and they are forced to fend for themselves. It isn’t that the government or our neighbors don’t want to help, sometimes they can’t, the situation is overwhelming or simply getting to us is impossible. We have to realize that people are killed, injured and have lives disrupted in the millions every year around the world and that no person is immune to these events. If you have not been effected yet you are fortunate, you may live your entire life and never be touched, many do but many do not. If the day ever comes that you are caught up in such an event regret will leave a bitter taste in your mouth. We prepare because not all disasters are earth shaking or life threatening, in fact loosing a loved one or a job is a disaster and that happens to millions of people every year in the United States alone. Prepping is about being ready to deal with disasters from those that are global in nature to those that are personal in nature.”
See I told you it was a factual answer, hell it is a damn good answer but in reality it goes far deeper.
