September is National Preparedness Month.
If 2020 has any lessons to be learned, one key piece that you've hopefully gained is that being prepared, a prepper, isn't just something for the connoisseurs of the finest in tin foil hat wear.
Preparedness is and should always be a way of life from here on out. First we saw empty shelves of non-existent toilet paper. For many of us that was no big deal, but for some, especially the elderly, it was something to be very worried about. Not necessarily for the toilet paper at face value, but what else did the future hold for everyday necessities, even food?
History has shown many examples of the outcome of failure in general preparedness. It's also shown many examples of having all of the preparations in the world, but no way, or no skills to defend it.
