I saw this quote the past week and realized…
We need to be more prepared
and I know we will never be 100% prepared.
But that doesn’t mean we can’t try.
Growing up, there were TWO times my parents lived off their “Food Storage”… I didn’t even know it until YEARS later! The first time, I wasn’t born yet. But the second time, I remember the time frame….
September 11, 2001.
A few months after this tragic event, my dad lost his job. Eventually, the entire company he was working for went under. My dad could not find a job for 11 months… and we eventually moved from Arizona to Omaha, Nebraska. During that time, we lived off our food storage.
But I never realized we were living off our food storage
1. My parents were rotating it, and using food I was ALREADY used to eating.
2. We always had enough food…. so for a kid… I never thought anything was wrong.
3. They never stressed about having food on the table As a kid… I never knew anything was wrong.. because they always HAD food because they were PREPARED.
Food storage was what helped us in that time of the disaster, but my parents were also prepared with evacuation plans. I remember what we were to do in case of a fire. I also remember about once a year we would rotate out our 72 Hr kits… taking out the old food, and putting in new clothes.
