Is the end of the world coming on December 21, 2012? If you watch enough of the Discovery or History channel, then you may think it is. Whether the whole world ends this year or not, your world could end at any moment and it makes sense to prepare. This isn't meant to scare you into some fanatical doomsday prepping situation, but disaster could legitimately strike at any time. Look what's happening to the people in Syria, Egypt, and Libya right now. Takea closer look at Sudan! Look what happened in London just last year. And remember, the genocides in Rwanda and Cambodia were not that long ago. Really! Look it up! Do you think they were prepared for the riots, the battles, the death? Not all tragedies have to involve mass murder, so consider these situations. What would happen if your home lost electricity for 3 days, for a week, for 2 weeks? What if it was winter or the hottest part of August? What would happen if your water became contaminated?
