Colin Campbell wrote this interesting article about how the Red Cross still hasn’t come to help in many of the areas hit by Hurricane Sandy:   “At a press conference this morning on Staten Island, a host of local officials, including Senators Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand, gathered to highlight the needs of the hard-hit borough in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. And, although many pols spoke, no one was more impassioned than Borough President James Molinaro, who called the Red Cross an “absolute disgrace” and even urged the public to cease giving them contributions.”

Even though our country is at the top of the food chain among advanced and civilized nations, we still do not have the ability to quickly come to the rescue of everyone who needs it after a disaster. Having nothing but a 72hr kit is once again shown to not offer any real security. We have to take responsibility for ourselves and our families and be ready for these kinds of events that happen year after year to every part of our country.  This highlights the reason why we put the time and effort into running RealisticPreparedness.com, because we’re all in this together.
