Preparedness is important, y’all. It’s not just something for scouts. And it’s not just something you do once and forget about. Instead, preparedness is a mentality. It’s knowing, practicing, and being ready for whatever life is most likely throw at you, including opportunity. It means being mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and physically prepared. And, it’s fun to use zombies as the excuse, because, zombies.
Preparedness is a mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual thing.

- Medical and health problems
- Disasters common to your area
- Death of loved ones
