North Korea hit the US with an EMP strike from a satellite that they had just put into orbit a couple months ago. No one was expecting it, the strike occurred two months ago. The electric grid is down, the transportation system is all but non-functional. There is sporadic violence breaking out, even in your small town. The big cities are pretty much a mess, gangs control large portions of the cities where even cops will not longer go.
You have been faithfully following the advice on AHTrimble.com for two years prior to the strike. You feel you are 100% ready for most of what is to come. You have 3 years worth of food for your 6 person family. You have heirloom seeds for two year’s worth of 2-acrea gardening. Your family has been practicing with their weapons regularly and you actually work on tactics together as a family. You even went so far as to practice “immediate action drills.”
Your kids range in ages 13 – 19, 2 girls, 2 boys. They were on-board with the whole prepping thing since the beginning. Now that the grid actually went down and SHTF they almost worship you since it turns out you were right all along.
Your family attends a great church around the corner, about three blocks away. You have been going there for years and you know most everyone there. Your kids love it, your wife is part of the women’s group leadership. Your two oldest children both have “special interests” at the church as well…meaning boyfriend or girlfriend.
Yesterday during the Sunday Service, the main speaker talked about how some families are really struggling and have little to no food left, their children are hungry. They reminded the congregation that the government can no longer provide food; even the basics are no longer available because that supply is drying up as well. But not to worry…the church leadership has a solution.
The concluding speaker gets up…the leader of the church. He outlines the new program:
- We are all Christians and we can all help each other out by working together.
- No one has to starve and the children don’t need to suffer.
- Everyone in the congregation will bring all their remaining food to the church…all of it, everyone.
- The food committee will then hand out the food to each family as it is needed.
- All the seed will also be brought to the church and another committee will be in charge of community gardens. Everyone will be expected to work in the community gardens. And the food from those gardens will be handed out by the food committee.
Your spouse thinks this is a wonderful idea, everyone works together for the common good of everyone. No one suffers, everyone benefits.
Do you participate?
- If yes, why?
- If no, why?
