Are You Prepared For This?

I came across this video today and thought it must be some kind of joke or a spoof of all of those Government or municipal preparedness PSAs we see on television. But no, this is an actual PSA.

Now, before you watch this video, let me say that I'm a big proponent of being prepared. As a matter of fact, the first thing that I always think of before undertaking any action, is "what could possibly go wrong", and then presume it could happen. I take pride in being prepared for the worst-case scenario.

So should everyone else. It goes without saying that if you live in an area that's prone to flooding, is bound to have a tornado or hurricane every year, has the potential for earthquakes, or just happens to be in the path of some type of natural or man-made disaster, common-sense dictates that you and your loved ones should always be aware of, and be prepared for, those potential disasters.

But, no one can prepare for every potential disaster. Some things are resigned to fate. It makes no sense wasting anyone's time and energy attempting to become prepared, or unnecessarily trying to educate (or scare), your kids into being prepared for things out of their control. Kids already have enough problems in their path without having to worry about nonsense like this -
