The Prepper Blood Chit in Spanish

Happy Thanksgiving

Today it’s traditional to take a break from the day-to-day and gather with family and friends to count our blessings.  We face many challenges individually, as families, and as a nation, but no matter the challenges there are blessings to be counted…I urge you to do so.

Additionally, as you gather today remember that those you choose to spend this day with are likely those that you would gather with in the event of a disaster… for mutual aid, support and even survival.  Family and Community Support is essential to preparedness.

Happy Thanksgiving,

Andrew J. Jackson

This same concept applies if you are new to preparedness.  If you are unable to lead your family’s efforts due to age or circumstance… hold a family meeting and choose another to lead the efforts… then help your family and the preparedness leader in every way you can.  To return to our ‘journey’ metaphor…you may no longer be driving the bus, but you are along for the ride and can contribute immeasurably to your family’s preparedness in other ways.

Because you are a seasoned citizen you have a lifetime of resources available to help your family’s efforts.  Consider your resources and contribute appropriately.  Some of the resources you may be able to contribute are: (more…)
