A basic welfare principle is that each individual is responsible to become self-reliant (see my post of October 6, 2009). One way to become self-reliant is to practice preparedness. Preparedness means the condition of being prepared. About two weeks ago I wrote a post entitled "Just In Case" about 72-hour kits. Since then I have been updating my own 72-hour kit and hope that you are also updating yours. Today I would like to direct your attention to a blog called Scribbit and the blog post entitled "Are You Prepared for An Emergency" on Monday, November 2, 2009. This post was full of details on being prepared. The author and her family have survived a couple of economic crises by practicing preparedness. She lists in detail many of the items that are important in being prepared. I encourage you to go to this blog for help in becoming better prepared. Remember, the prepared individual and families bring strength to communities and nations.
