About a year ago I wrote a post for the Canadian Preppers Network blog called Two Solitudes.

Lately it seems we have all become a bit more complacent. Do we need another major incident to awaken us once again to the reason for being prepared? Who knows when we will see another major event that disrupts our daily routines reminding us why we prepare. We will never have sufficient warning to prepare for the earthquake, flash flood, power outage, or anything else that looms ahead. Always we should remain vigilant and work together in our quest to be resilient, self sustaining and prepared.
