What, Me Worry?

“There is no dependence that can be sure but a dependence upon one’s self.”– John Gay

More than 2 million families experience some sort of disaster or major emergency every year! These incidences range from major events that simultaneously affect thousands of people, (9/11 and Katrina) to individual catastrophes (serious traffic accidents or home fires). Yet less than half the families in America have taken a single step to prepare themselves for such misfortunes.

This lack of preparedness reflects a cavalier attitude toward both unforeseen and predictable disturbances…what we refer to as “disaster denial.”

In reality, we all know disasters can and do happen, and one could strike you. The probability and proven track record of such occurances generate a constant, underlying low-level hum in the background of our lives. It becomes a source of worry and stress. Why do we not act? How is it that we don’t prepare for emergencies?
