"Sustainable living and simple tools..are all around us..in practice..and in resource..One must simply look ..and apply to their lives!What is the Big Deal?"
This comment was sent to me..on another service..and I thought I'ld share this with all of our community here!The person making this statement..has "Never" camped in a tent..worked with Tools..in their life..Never "Gathered berries in the wild"..or..hunted/fished for their food!Their idea.. of hunting,and gathering..is going to the local food/ Grocery store..and finding out that they are out of Bree cheese!
I talked with them..and gave them "Home work"..and they came back with the comment.."I'll never do that again..even if the power goes out..The Government will step in and all will be restored"..Then I referred her to the recent snafu of this winter..when MOST of the North east GRID..shut down as a result of the snow,and storms that ..hit that area..
Then I switched gears and brought her to South Dakota..and the Storm in November 08..Where Thousands had no power..and some still do not..Where is the government then?The reason most were able to work thru that mess was from "Simple tools"..of "sustainable living"..to keep warm..have "Stores " of food and emergency supplies ..to keep warm..and live with while things got fixed!
Just a few thoughts to ponder..what do you have to say?
