One Second After

As I observe what is taking place in our Country politically and economically, I have unintentionally stumbled into a few, insightful men and women who have been paying closer attention than I have and who are taking precautions so as to protect themselves and their families in the event of a total collapse of (or attack on) our society.

There is a term for these quiet folks as they have “outed” by the National Geographic television show “Doomsday Preppers

As I began asking questions of one of these guys, (no, he is not on the TV show) who I have known since moving to Aiken thirteen years ago, he suggested I first buy and read the book by William R. Forstchen entitled, “One Second After“. I did. May I suggest that you do the same?

If you read this book and don't get scared, you were not paying attention

Who will you depend on, if out of nowhere, it all shuts down and there is a lawless, free for all?

I am pretty sure there are a few readers of this blog that have already prepared, to varying degrees, for just such an event. I just sense that from some of your blogs and comments on mine. I know it is something that is not advertised.

Many of you will probably chuckle at the suggestion that something “really bad” is possible and getting more likely every day. I hope and pray that you are right.

A couple of you will get the book and read it.

The choice is yours, but you can get the iBook version and know what I’m describing here by dinner time, (if you aren’t scheduled to wash & wax your daughter’s “Dora the Explorer” after church like I am today).

The first thing that got my attention is that the main character in the story was born the same year as me (1960), that he lived in Newark, NJ…just next to where I lived as a young boy, (Hillside, NJ) and that the story plays out less than 200 miles from where I live now, (the Western Mountains of North Carolina).

Then the story takes over….and what a story it is. Fiction?….yes. Possible?……

Living between Aiken & Charleston,, South Carolina, USA, I like to share what I am looking at, thinking about or listening to. I refer to this as the view out my window. Thanks for stopping by.
