For so long, the preparedness journey felt like one of isolation. Either due to paranoia, self-imposed design or the sheer misunderstanding of the journey or embarrassment, imposed isolation or choice – the means don’t matter as much as the fact that it can be a lonely journey…if you let it be.
At one point people who felt the need to prepare thought it was all on them alone to do so. The reality is, no one can be fully prepared, or even mostly prepared while alone or even isolated as a family. There will always be an area in which your immediate circle lacks either a skill, tangible good or ability.
Thankfully, many people are waking up to the need to prepare for an uncertain future. This helps break down the walls and create more opportunity to connect.
Take a moment to browse around this website and see all the avenues by which we at PREPARE Magazine are trying to build cost effective and free bridges to connect with others so that you can be more prepared, but not alone:
We would like to encourage everyone to connect to build those smaller communities that can bolster each other when the going gets tough. After all, most great countries were built upon the foundation of small resilient communities. Times like these show us how important it is to re-fortify that foundation!
