As a teenager I was like most, living in a dream world with no realization of unexpected life-changing situations happening to me. As I grew wiser with years, and especially after reading Terri Blackstock’s Last Light, book one of a series which depicts a middle class family dealing with the unexpected terror of America losing all its electrical power, its communications, its transportation, its financial system, and its government leadership, I realized that anything could happen. Although this story may be far-fetched, it made me realize that I am not ready for even the smallest of disasters. Heck, I didn’t even have a flashlight handy for power outages!
Like I said in the video, my motto when it comes to these type of things are, “it’s better to be safe than sorry.” Even if I don’t use the kit, it just gives me peace of mind to have on hand. If you would like to purchase the survival kit featured in the video, you can buy it at Survival Buys Online for $30. Now, this is a smaller kit, so I would recommend looking into the Essentials Survival kit or the Children’s Survival Kit.
Thank you to Survival Buys Online for providing the kit for the video. You can follow them on twitter @SurvivalBuys
