THROUGHOUT AMERICAN HISTORY, AMERICA HAS FACED MAJOR ADVERSITY AT TIMES. BUT TODAY, WITH DEPENDENCE ON CARS AND ELECTRICITY TO LIVE, WE'VE NEVER BEEN SO UNPREPARED. LIFE COULD CHANGE FOREVER IN A SHORT MOMENT IN A COUNTRY THAT LIVES FOR TODAY WITHOUT THINKING MUCH ABOUT TOMORROW.

WE AMERICANS TAKE OUR LIFESTYLE FOR GRANTED. WHEN WE NEED SOMETHING FROM THE STORE, WE HOP IN THE CAR AND GET IT IN A JIF.  TOO WARM IN THE HOUSE? LOWER THE THERMOSTAT.  TOO HOT OUTSIDE? MANY OF US JUMP IN OUR BACKYARD POOLS.

BUT WHAT IF DISASTER STRIKES? WHAT IF YOU HAVE NO ELECTRICITY AND NO GAS FOR YOUR CAR.  A MAJOR HURRICANE OR TORNADO, A FINANCIAL COLLAPSE,  TERRORISM, RIOTS OR EVEN OPEN WARFARE CAN TAKE PLACE AT ANY TIME IN THIS WORLD OF OURS TODAY AND  HISTORY SHOWS THAT ALL OF THESE THINGS HAVE HAPPENED AND HAVE HAD DIRE CONSEQUENCES FOR THOSE WHO WEREN'T PREPARED.  AND TODAY WE EVEN HAVE UNTHINKABLE HORRORS THAT HAVE NEVER IMPACTED OUR COUNTRY INTERNALLY:  AN INVASION, AN ELECTRO-MAGNETIC PULSE ATTACK, A NUCLEAR EXPLOSION ARE ALL IN THE REALM OF POSSIBILITY IN THE HERE AND NOW.

WE WILL TALK ABOUT THIS WEDNESDAY NIGHT AT 9 FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF WHAT YOU CAN DO TO PROTECT YOURSELF AND YOUR FAMILY.  IT'S A SLIGHT DETOUR FROM OUR HISTORY SERIES  BUTTHESE ARE UNUSUAL TIMES AND TO BE UNPREPARED COULD LIKELY MEAN THE INABILITY TO LIVE THROUGH A DISASTER.  I HOPE YOU'LL TUNE IN. YOU CAN NEVER BE OVERPREPARED WHEN BAD TIMES STRIKE.
